Question

Welcome to the server photos thread. In this thread you may post pics of your server.

Please be mindful of our members on dial-up and try to keep the dimensions of the pics and the size of the files to a respectable size for 1024 x 768 viewers. [b]Please refrain from quoting images in your replies.[/b]

I will also ask that you link to images on your own space, as much as possible.

The usual forum rules also apply.

Please tell me you dont have these at home, and if you do WHAT ARE YOU DOING WITH THEM?

But by far the most badass rack server setup.

All the other tower server setups, I like.

Ill post my rack soon, gotta actually get good pictures :whistle:

My 6Tb Home Server. Serves all the xbox360's in the house and laptops. Neighbors connect to my wifi to stream from it... They can't get to the internet through my wifi connection.

I didn't do much cable management. Drives are all cool so I'm not going to bother.

Recursive virtualization? Type 1 Hypervisor running atop another Type 1 Hypervisor...

 

Was that just for show or is there a reason for the nested hypervisors?

Server is on the bottom, 1U Dell Poweredge 860.

 

Server Specs

Intel Pentium D 2.8GHz

2GB DDR2 RAM

320GB HDD (OS Install)

2TB HDD (File Storage)

Details: http://www.dell.com/downloads/ap/products/servers/en/PE860_spec_ap.pdf

 

I have a Raid adapter but not using it currently as I am awaiting a SATA power splitter to install a 3rd drive. Also need to purchase another 2TB to stripe with the other. 3rd drive will be a 80GB SSD for the OS install. Main use is a file server with a little Minecraft on the side. Plan to upgrade to 4 or 8GB RAM to help with Minecraft slots.

Question about your SSD drives, are you running your VMs from there and how are they doing. Looking at doing the same but wondering about the type of SSD drive i should be look at.

Right now I'm using them for the OS drive, 2x Samsung 840s. As I test the Remote VM stuff I'll end up buying beefier SSDs for my VMs, but for now they are sitting on 2x 500GB WD SAS drives..
