Please do share your experience with the 2ML and Chenbro/foxconn (presumably the T2491601 on their website). I'd be interested to buy one or two of them purely for cheap compute and would like to know if the Intel system is worth the extra bucks.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
FYI on the riser issue: Natex now offers risers for $10 when buying these boxes.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.
Our servers are fully tested with CPU's and memory. This was purchased as our "Build your own server" . The order did not include any memory or CPU's and so the memory and CPU's were pulled. It was by mistake that the heat sinks did not ship with the order.Wonder how these were even tested before shipped if they didn't arrive with heatsinks on em.
