Hey all, I'm in the market for 3x 1U or a quad 2U blade server(s), in the Sandy/Ivy Bridge era with DDR3. So HP G8's, Supermicro X9's, Cisco M3's, etc. I'd prefer one of those 3 brands over Dell/others, just because I know them, but really any manufacturer with sensible modern IPMI would work for me [C6100: never again].

I'm local to Southern Ontario (Hamilton) and local-ish pickup would be ideal to avoid shipping costs, but wouldn't pass up a good (shipped) deal. Total budget is about $1000-1200 CAD (~$750-900 USD), but am a bit flexible depending on what's around. I'd prefer to buy all 3 at the same time, but if a particular model has a couple people selling I'm willing to buy separately - my goal is 3 identical machines (or the single 2U quad).

Thanks for looking!

I have two or three 2U two node Supermicro servers. I have 1-2 X9's and an X8 (the X8 can be upgraded to X9 for cheap though, the chassis are compatible).

I'm in USA/MN so shipping may be a bit and idk about customs but I'd be willing to ship. I am looking for ~$200 USD + shipping for the X8 chassis and could do $400+shipping for the X9 chassis. I have 1 3.5" (LFF) chassis and 1-2 SFF (2.5") chassis. Some rails too.

PM me or post here for more details. Paypal only

Look for EMC Avamar Gen 4s boxes, 1u, 8x2.5"+DVD, intel S2600GL OEM units. Will run V1/V2. The EMC avamar storage nodes are the same in 2u, 12x3.5" +2x2.5" internal configuration.

What are the specs of each individual node? I'd only be interested in the X9 (got plenty of X8-era stuff).

I actually am keeping the chassis that have X9 nodes, sorry. I only have the chassis themselves (and the metal sleds for nodes) left.
