Can anyone tell me if the newer XEON Microservers (branded as HPE) require HP Enterprise drives?

Having an issue with one, and I think HP are trying to tell me (without telling me) that they now require HPE drives.

Just ordered a HP Gen8 G1610T for $263 from Warehouse 1 ebay site. They have 20% off at the moment using code C20TEK. Thought I'd share the love.

Yeah, now just spending a bit finding some cheap-ish unbuffered ECC RAM.

Cheapest I got so far without having to drive far or ship far is a Kingston KVR16LE 8GB 1600MHz from CPL for $94.

I take it your local system is 1Gbit? I ask as I'm getting 107MB/s writes from my laptop to my ÁS over a gigabit connection and >450MB/s writes from server to server when doing backups via a 10Gbit connection - so my laptop's NIC is the bottleneck.

yep that was over the 1gbe link. here is the 10, it does drop down when the ram cache fills up to around 200-300. with 100% cpu. that is over iSCSI, over windows file share it doesn't get much over 100MB/s
