    HP Storage Server

    Hi there,
    I already have one HP Storage Works storage server for our network and it runs like a dream. So well, users have really started saving a lot of work to it.
    Recently, I needed to rebuild the raid and I have struggled to find somewhere to move all of the folders from this server to, as I don't have anything large enough on the network, not even if I add together all of our smaller NAS's.

    I think it is time to invest in a second server which can be used as a backup for the Storage Works server. I could go ahead and purchase another StorageWorks Server but with the HDDs inculded, it would cost a fortune.
    Can anyone recommend a cheaper HP model which can take high capacity hdd's which don't nececarrily need to be super fast as users won't be benefiting from using them?

    Maybe something like this from Misco?
    HP DL380e Gen8 Dual Processor Capable / Intel Xeon E5-2407 / 4GB / No Hard Drive / Rack Server / 3 Year Warranty (470065-719) - www.misco.co.uk

    I am suggesting HP as I have used them for years, their warranty service is super and I am yet to have a single serious problem.

    Hey talksr,

    The DL380 you've mentioned is a very popular, robust unit so I'd recommend that. I'd get you a much lower price than that though

    Let me know if you need pricing etc
