Default Small NAS = HP Micro Server

Nice looking little device

http://h18004.www1.hp.com/products/q.../13716_na.html

This is a Low Power (read 35w with 4 x HDD's) NAS/Mini Server
Quiet with a single 120mm low speed fan in the rear
And a tiny fan in the PSU

Amd dual core 1.3ghz
2 x PC10600E Memory slots (takes 8gig of ECC, or non ECC)
Comes standard with 1gig ram, 250gig HDD and a 160w PSU (some versions had 160gig HDD and a 200w PSU)

From spec sheet :
Slot 1: PCI-Express Gen 2 x16 connector with x16 link
Slot 2: PCI-Express Gen 2 x1 connector with x1 Link
Slot 2-2: PCI-Express x4 slot for optional management card (HP 615095-B21 Micro Server Remote Access Card Kit)
description here http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16816401170

Optional management card gives you IPMI 2 type interface

Depending how you configure it, you can have between 4 and 9 HDD's installed in one tiny chassis
4 x Cold Swap trays
4 x 2.5inch drives in the CDrom Bay
1 x 2.5inch drive under the CDrom Bay


Some info from this thread

Thanks, looks interesting. Aus price will be important. Also no RAID 5 or 6. But I like the low noise low power.

Some more links

Dell has some new NAS stuff too, but its on the other end of the scale. Pretty much a fully fledged PC customized to be more like a NAS.

Looks like the big boys are starting to realise lots of consumers want large centralised storage devices.

I would never trust a HP product after my last 3 laptop disasters. :/ I definitely wouldn't trust them with a micro server lol

HP servers all the way here, no dramas at all. Wouldn't hesitate to buy one of these.

Actually had a quick google but not much around in AU, unless I'm missing something...

First problem is that its not in stock and I honestly question if you'd get it at that price?
The wholesale from Ingram is a lot more!
