    Kodiak Data AMD EPYC Private Cloud Cluster

    @Patrick This looks amazing. I am kind of interested to see what some of your terraform code looks like, now that I am using it exclusively at my current job.

    ZFS on Proxmox host, VM, or Dedicated?

    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...

    Need pfSense Low Power Build Advice

    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) Supermicro X11SBA-LN4F Review - Sweet!

    $33 + FS Intel DC S3500 80GB; $50 + FS Intel DC S3500 160GB

    Maybe that is why they are so cheap. Someone mounted them backwards, and they didn't work, so they are trying to sell them as a bad drive, when really they were just mounted wrong.

    Dell C6100 used for openstack cluster.

    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...

    Dell C6100 used for openstack cluster.

    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). $800 is about my budget for the main disks. Any reason I shouldn't get the 480GB SM843T ? 480Gb Samsung SM843T Data Center...

    I am also in the same boat with trying to find a way to download the vCSA. VMWare site shows that I am not allowed to download it with my current account.

    Dell C6100 used for openstack cluster.

    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...

    Cheap LGA1356 E5-2450L

    I bought a Lenovo ThinkServer TD340 awhile back on a sale, not realizing how expensive upgrade CPUs would be. Lenovo ThinkServer TD340 Tower Server System Intel Xeon E5-2403 v2 I got 2 of these, as it takes the v1 chips. Now I have to max out the RAM, and then try to sell...
