Ok so I got the servers mixed up, the Dell is a Dell PowerEdge III 2950 and is running the Hyperviser and the Hp is a HP ProLiant DL 385 Gen2 and runs the 2 FTB Minecraft servers
2 Quad core Intel Xeon E5430 @ 2.66 GHz
32 GB DDR2 800 Ram
6 7.2k 500GB Hard Drives running in Raid 5 with 1 hot spare
2 Dual Core AMD Opteron, not sure of the model @ 3.0 GHz
16 GB DDR 400 Ram
2 10k 500GB running in Raid 1, the server doesn't have any slots for more drives
All of this is backup up with a 1500 APC UPS and backs up to my desktop every night (with a horrible set of scripts)
Lastly my net is a BT Business line running at 76mb down and 19 up.
The cost of running all of this is about £100 per month. £60 of that is on the connection.
The big thing that I found running this from home was keeping it cool through the summer, during winter its not a problem, in summer the servers get quite hot but never enough to worry me or power them down.
I have had a look at the tech you posted, but it just seems to compact and doesn't have a whole lot of room.
I'm looking for something in the range of what @notalot is running, only with 32gb ddr3 ram (ddr2 is just too slow).
The above @notalot post) goes for around £200 on ebay. How much more would i fork out for the equivalent processor and ram but in todays age?
At the risk of sounding uncool and out of the loop........what's Dayz?
To be fair you would be surprised how far DDR2 will go.
As I've said above I'm running some fairly intensive game servers with a large number of players across them, I tend to find that the Hard Disk access times are the bottle neck rather than the ram.
On eBay the prices are looking like £300-£500 ish in the dell range something like a Dell PowerEdge R710 and HP Proliant DL380 G6 if your really wanting the DDR3 but I'm not sure if you really need it.
Compared to the difference the hard drives make to your server performance - you wouldn't even notice whether you had ddr2 or ddr3 ram.
I was looking in custom PC magazine last night, theres a couple of manufacturers there offering pretty decent "entry-level" high-end PCs at around the £500 mark or just over, I would be tempted to consider one of them over a specific server if your looking for something a bit more beefy than a Microserver, the PSUs though are a thing to be wary of, as they can start to smash the electric bill in if you use it a lot (my main rig has a 550w psu and its quite noticable on the usage when that things on a lot in things like school hols instead of my two hours a couple of times a night)
