How about having both systems run proxmox and setup ceph storage?
I have ZFS running on proxmox through CLI setup. It does take away memory for running VMs, so I am very interested in this scenario, and possible alternatives.
I know I had to limit the ZFS RAM cache size to 8GB, otherwise it...
What about the SUPERMICRO X11SBA-LN4F running a N3700?
IPMI, AES-NI, good PCIe, quad 1Gb NICs.
The only downside is no ECC support. (And they are $217 on newegg currently, might as well spend $30 more for c2558)

I have known I would need a 2.5 to 3.5 adapter. I will see if the ones that came with the Intel s3500 I got will work.
There is no removable grill in the back where the mezx cards go. I would have to dremel a hole for them.
I have ConnectX 2 VPI in the PCIe slot, as it was significantly...
So, I found a decent deal on Intel 300GB DC S3500 for $75 each.
I am looking at the 480Gb Samsung SM843T, as opposed to the PM853T. (The 480GB PM853T is about $150).

I have a C6100 that I want to setup with Openstack.
The only decision holding me back right now is HDD / SSD choice. Should I get some inexpensive 2TB HGST drives that have been dumped on ebay recently? Or should I get 8 Intel DC S3500 drives? (Or should I get a mix of both?)
Does anyone one...
I bought a Lenovo ThinkServer TD340 awhile back on a sale, not realizing how expensive upgrade CPUs would be.

I got 2 of these, as it takes the v1 chips. Now I have to max out the RAM, and then try to sell...
I got my two servers delivered yesterday.
I have not had time to test anything out, and probably won't be able to until the weekend.
I will get a better picture of the LSI card and 10G mezz card when I get home tonight.
