    Dell Poweredge 2950

    Hi All

    After doing the last lot of my ESXi exams I have now been instructed by the Mrs to sell my test server, (again) Apparently it uses 2 much electricity, (even tho I pay the electric bill) and also is 2 loud.. Women huh.. Anyway thought I would post a link on here to see if anyone in / around london maybe interested.

    Its a Dell 2950, 16GB Ram, 2 x quad core processors (E5430), PERC6I Raid card.

    TIA

    Open to offers, I forgot to mention it has rails if needed... Its only tonight the Mrs has told me it has to go :-(

    I will get some pictures taken in the morning when I can get it out of the rack, but here is a link to a picture of the same unit (so you can see what it looks like)

    Love the yellow and the google branding!

    I'm going to look up how much it'd cost to get ups up to me.

    That's Funkey!

    We used 2950's III in production for a 3 way esx cluster and were super machines. They remain in in service as ESXi and XEN Hosts

    They are very good machines... I just wish I could keep it, but am having to move to a couple of MicroServers which have sod all power :-(

    They can take unto 64GB RAM so they are great ESXI Hosts for VMs and with the Quad core CPS they can run most things you throw at it.

    If you need anymore info please let me know.

    Set it up in the loft where she won't find it =P

    They are excellent old pieces of kit, unfortunately we had to retire our 3 in the summer after 5 years as we out-grew them. Not one failure in those 5 years, on any part! So anybody looking to buy one they do come recommended
