Bought a Few servers!


Bought a few old DL140's ->

What I got:

2x DL140 Server U1.
-Free Rails for a rackmount
-NO CDROM ( Didnt want )
-1GB ECC Ram ( Single Chip - Upgrade costs ~60$ to 4GB )
-3.06 Ghz Xeon Processor (single CPU - Ideal Mate for it ~80$ )
-2xGigbit Ethernet ( btw - Both work with Ubuntu 9.10 )

So yea, the form factor was what I was looking for, for the price I was looking for. I had to make a install on a stick with Ubuntu 9.10 server. Plugged it in, and ran installer with success! Needless to say, I still haven't unwrapped the second one yet though.

Needless to say it works like a dream, and ill be excited to play with them a bit.
