    What to do with......

    got a couple of viglen HPC 1u servers (2x opteron 270 4GB RAM IDE HDD)
    from what i can gather they wont run ESXI as no raid so ideas what they might be useful for?
    was thinking of a testbed for bits and bobs but seeing as most stuff which is interesting to test is usual based around virtual environments this is a bit of a none starter

    fit for the bin only?

    shame they are a little bit too old for virtual box as they dont have AMD-V , another option would be to put some other hardware into the case's which is a bit more modern (possibly more hassle than its worth)
