Welcome to the on-line marketing and information area for Peaker Pattinson.
The Snell Ice servers are recent Supermicro machines.
There are some job lots of HP, including some Gen9.
Technically anyone can bid, but you have to be willing to come and collect.Interesting platform. All of the auctions seem to be in the UK though. Is someone aware of such a platform for Germany?
They are video playout servers but I don't have direct experience of them. Probably 8-16 cores with 64GB of RAM, probably not a GPU but if it was it would be a Quadro. They were probably sold for upward of £30k with their specialist software.This looks like a fun auction. A bit hard to find any info about those Ice-servers.
Yea, I think they'd make a lot more if they did postage but they are really looking for quick offload and the buyers can sell on. You see this stuff end up on eBay sometimes.This might be some more info on the server specification.
I'd like one or two if only for the white chassis but its the whole hassle of driving down there afterwards and picking the thing up is putting me off.
Govdeals here in the US is the same--local collections and a lot of 'buyer's' premium and other fees to factor in or you can get bamboozled.Yea, I think they'd make a lot more if they did postage but they are really looking for quick offload and the buyers can sell on.
Correct me if I'm wrong but the cost looks like ( Bid + 15.5% ) + VAT, so a £100 bid = £138 payable before petrol & time costs to pickup.And the additional fees they add can catch a buyer out.
Yea, I got a Dell Latitude i7 for something like £150 elsewhere, it was less than a year old and clean.Correct me if I'm wrong but the cost looks like ( Bid + 15.5% ) + VAT, so a £100 bid = £138 payable before petrol & time costs to pickup.
Only seems worth it if you know exactly what you're getting inside the servers, or the price is so ridiculously low you just don't care if it doesn't pay off.
SAM/Snell was bought by Grass Valley, so the products are synonymous.Hi
I think the it might be fair to assume the bidders who paid an average of £2.5k for the Supermicro ICE Servers knew exactly what they were and probably had a use for them.
I took a quick look and I think the Grass Valley Ice Playout Servers are based on this platform, but I may be wrong.

It was interesting to watch the bidding.
