    Nice server for all in one box running freenas. Now just need to wait for it to hit eBay.

    I would get it with rear configuration that gives the most pci slots. That way I can add network card, optane drive and usb card.

    Having this would let me combine my current r720 2u and 3u SM jbod case I use for storage into a 2u solution and probably be more energy efficient.

    Finallly! Dell/EMC has an answer to the HPE Apollo 4200...

    I would like to know how they are planning on doing the 10 SFF/16 LFF configuration. And It would have been nice to see more SFF options in the rear.
