    HP finally release the replacement to the ProLiant ML115

    HP ProLiant MicroServer series overview - HP Small & Medium Business products

    Looks more like a NAS box than a server, but may prove popular as a VM test box if the price is right. What do you guys think?

    We will be, but they're so new we haven't had an ETA yet! We managed to get hold of the last ever stock of the old ML115's before they were discontinued to last us until these microservers appear though.

    Very interested in these if they are as small and tidy as they look.

    Only 2 ram slots limited to 4gb each is a bit of a needless restriction.

    Interesting choice of processor to put in it too. Basically a slightly scaled up netbook processor.

    Not sure why you think 8GB RAM limit is bad though. If you have a system which needs more than that, then you need a more powerful machine generally. Otherwise its like putting a Supercharger on a Fiat Uno...

    I agree, if using it for virtualization. Other than the size, the ML110 G6 for £245 looks like a better choice for an entry-level server since this supports 16GB RAM (4 x DIMM slots) and has a much faster processor.

    Virtualising on that processor is going to be a bit limited...

    Its not that its bad. Thats the ml115 limit, if i was getting something to replace my current ml115 vm rig, i'd want the ability to put more than 8gb in it.

    As a former Renault 5 turbo owner, the suggestion of a supercharged uno just seems like a good idea (there was a production uno turbo).

    Anyone know the processor speed of the 'base' model? The ML115 gives me 4 cores of 2.2GHz which is nice, if this is only 2 cores I'd like a speed boost at least. Also a bit worried about the half-height, half-length expansion slots - I believe the ML115 was full length or am I wrong? Are there any cheap 1Gb NICs on the VMware HCL that would fit?

    I've got two ML115s as VMware platforms, hopefully I won't have to buy another as I'll finally get the budget to do things properly (Dell R710's w/48GB RAM) but the ML115 worked nicely as a go-between.

    I've never had any problems with Athlon Neo for VMs (more than can be said with Intel Atom); all the same I don't think HP had VM in mind when they put this together.

    Dual Core 1.3Ghz Athlon NEO II.

    Got a couple of Athlon Neo laptops, they're pretty quick for what they are (a low end low power processor). Don't see this as a replacement for the ML115, but it's certainly got a place in the market.
