ohh the dadhumorYeah his current cpu cannot ryzen to the same epyc performance
The switching part is what has been holding me back from already having replaced my standard 2u boxes with epyc.if only we could get some switches to go with them.
I bought connectx-6 for everything, got a box of 25? ish on my desk here but dx010 switches, are gone, everything else with OS is gone (100gbe) :|The switching part is what has been holding me back from already having replaced my standard 2u boxes with epyc.
2x25gbe connectx4 is already available down in the 50-60$ if buying a few of them.
(already what i buy to use as 2x10 since like 5$ diffrence and gets me pcie gen3 instead of 2)
But the 25gbe switching is not so fun pricing on.
The 2x 40gbe mloms i got in the cisco boxes as 1x40 4x10 is still esxi8 supported.
For the epyc its either bite the bullet on 2000€ in switching or back down to full 10g.
hypothetically speaking if you were to send even a 300-500kg pallet through marked that low it raises no flags at all.I'm pretty sure that if I would declare Fedex International Priority package weighing near 2kg "USD $48 (including shipping)" they would automatically flag the package for further inspection..
Fedex does not care, but Fedex has no role here, it's 100% finnish customs agency. They will notify Fedex to release the package when everything is in order. It would be better if the sender prepaid taxes, in that case it will not route to local customs at all.Fedex etc simply does not care and for priority they generaly self-declare and direct delivery, not in the regular customs system.
As an alternative suggestion that might be cheaper, you might consider getting rid of some of the PCIe by consolidating the HBAs to a single controller plus cheap HP SAS2 expander (your 24x spinners are only very rarely going to saturate 8 lanes of SAS2; even better if you upgrade to denser drives). You can also drop the P2000 by offloading Plex to a separate, cheap 7th-gen uSFF/TMM with QSV -- with significantly reduced power draw. That would reduce your PCIe needs to the range of say X470D4U or X11SSM-F. With X11SCH-F you could even keep Plex on the same machine, using a chip with iGPU. Or a -TF board to let you drop the X710. Lots of possibilities.Like many I built a dual Xeon e5-2670 in a S2600CP a few years back.
I have 128 GB ram (16 x 8GB)
3 LSI SAS2308-8i SAS controllers connected to a backplane that hosts 24 3.5 inch HDD's
a Intel P3605 SSD
a Nvidia Quadro P2000
and a Intel X710 network card.
I run about 30-40 Docker containers on an Ubuntu system. They include Plex, Radarr, Sonarr, Readarr, Prowlarr, Lidarr, Sabnzbd, qBittorrent, TeamCity, servers for SVN and Git and a some others that don't do much unless interacted with.
On top of that I also run 3 VM's using KVM that include a Windows Server and two Windows 10 machines used by TeamCity as build agents.These all sit idle 99% of the time.
