Natex.us has these listed.. I might have bought this if I had not already purchased windmill systems.

"This item is 10 of our Quanta 2ML's packed full of goodies and shipped in a server rack.

10x Quanta 2ML
20x E5-2670
80x 4gb Samsung PC3-10600R
Quanta LB6M
Shipped in a RACK with SFP cables and an extra with a 10gb card for a PC and cable" all for $3850. Not bad when it has a 10Gbe switch and rack included.

P.S. A single Quanta 2ML Duel 2011 16DIMM 1u Rack Server are $125 bare listed under "servers-build your own"

That build your own looks pretty tempting actually. Out the door with dual E5-2670's and 64GB's of ram for $351.

I really need to stop coming here.

Seriously! I'm tempted to pick up one of the 2ML servers. Can't imagine they're anything but hilariously noisy, though.

I spoke to the Natex.us folks today. Looking to see if we can get a deal on these. They are working on it.

Does this have any PCI slots? From what they list on the website, I can't see any. Should we expect expansion cards on these 1u chassis?

It has one pci slot, but no riser included. Going to have to locate a compatible riser.

I think one pci slot is sufficient for such a tiny unit. Please share here if you find such a compatible rise.

BTW, does anyone have any idea how loud this server farm is? Thinking about putting one in the lab if it is not too loud.

Went and saw Natex Today, Pretty cool joint, lots o gear in the warehouse @Patrick Your Rack says HI!

I have my hands on a 2ML System they also having me test another system thats they called a Chenbro/Foxconn... So far things are working on em ill give more updates when i got them... From what i can tell with the 2ML its possibly from the Amazon Cloud as when the Ethernet tries to boot it says Amazon on it.

IPMI so far is dedicated so its got a single 10GB link on it... im looking around on the board to see if i can share it or not...

I can post pics whatever u wanna see Lemme know!

Noise at startup of course is loud, it does quiet down pretty well tho especially for a 1U

They did not reply my email nor Skype. I wanna ask some questions and buy in bulk.

Or should I just place an order through their web?
