Thought I came up with a good one, but Na.
Recently got a quote for the following used server --
Dell R720 SFF Dual E5-2670 8 core 2.5 Ghz 192 GB RAM 8x New Samsung 480GB SSD H710 integrated LSI SAS RAID 0-6 16 drive Bay server Dual 750W power supply Rail kit 1 year warranty
Quoted price was $2629/ea. The plan would be to replace my aging R905 with two newer servers.
Comments or suggestions?
Spinning disks should always be RAID 10. You may want to check the difference in pricing if you went with SSDs.
