Is that actually your server? :p

Be awesome if it was though

Work one. I wish haha.

Are you allowed to be posting pics of workplace closets?

Good question.

Back to more modest hardware I think...

Old server on the top - a Seagate GoFlex Net running Arch Linux ARM and underneath is it's replacement - HP ProLiant N40L Microserver running WHS2011.

Not yet quite finished setting up the N40L, but getting there. And I couldn't really turn say no - ?116 from Amazon after ?100 cash back, which I've just got my confirmation email for.

No it doesn't have 4 it has 7 ;)

  • USB 2.0 Ports:
    Seven (7) USB 2.0 ports: 4 front , 2 rear, 1 internal (for tape)

Many use the internal one for holding the OS, be it unraid, esxi, etc.

Damn, if only I was allowed a phone/camera into my place of work.......now that'd be server porn.

Datacentre baby...wall to wall LEDs and air con :)

I don't have a home sever yet. Was contemplating what to look at for a budget streamer. Currently my Quad Core PC is using Serviio to stream everything to anyone in the house, meaning it's on 24/7 which is a pain.

Love to look at a media server, put in the loft, and have a nifty WOL script run when somebody wants to access the streamer. It's a dream..........

It is a server in its own right.

My place was built in the mid-60's and has an interesting room down the basement, very cool, no windows, pretty perfect for a) wine and b) servers.

I used existing conduit in the wall from an old central vacuum system to run cat6 throughout. I'm working on re-cabling and making everything pretty again, but for the most part this has been untouched for about 2 years.

Here's a shot of the wall-mounted 12U rack:

From top to bottom,

-TrendNet cat6 patch panel

-D-Link DGS-1224T Smart Switch (great switch actually, full gigabit, not a bad price.)

-Router: Ubiquiti RouterStation Pro + 2x Atheros AR9160 MIMO 3T3R MiniPCI radios (one on 2.4GHz, one on 5GHz, the coax you see to the right goes out to a patch antenna aimed at the remainder of the house.), OpenWrt Attitude Adjustment

-Comcast Business Class Gateway (SMC D3G)

-Media Center: Norco RPC-230, Intel DH77DF, Core i5 2500K, RocketRAID 2720, 4x Seagate 3TB disks (RAID 5), Ceton InfiniTV 4, Windows 7 Ultimate

-Server, Norco RPC-430, MSI P55-GD55, Core i7 860, 4x WD 2TB disks (two RAID 1 arrays), Windows Server 2008 R2

-CyberPower PDU

I'm working on getting this little project in place, this is an Atom DN2800MT that will run Windows Server 2012 and become my super-low-power-almost-silent domain controller.

Still in the test-fit phase but should have this guy up soon.

Nice wire management on the Atom. What PSU are you using? Looks like a pico-psu, but I can't see the tiny pcb on it.

This board is a bit strange, but it doesn't require the picoPSU. You simply plug in a DC converter and go, power is distributed from a SATA-ish looking port on the board, which you'll see on the right side of the photo.

Interesting. Can you post the power usage of this setup? I'm tempted to invest in a picoPSU (or equivalent) like setup for a while but not sure if it would be worth it. I'm currently running a 350 Watt 80% PSU, Intel Atom with two "green" hard disk drives and its burning through 43-46 Watts.

I would post a picture of mine but its based in an old Compaq desktop case (i.e. nothing exciting). I also have the DGS-1224T 24 port switch with a small CyberPower UPS.

Crispy, I know it as an ITX. And I knew after d0ogie posted that it wasn't a pico-psu. And I wanted to know what the model number was.

Edit- maybe not, they usually have their logo on it. Nice case you've got there.
