Haha! They're on the Isle of Man! Small world (I'm from there). They'd better not let the Lieutenant Governor see that they use 'UK' in their name!Originally Posted by bigdpm
Build it yourself :P
we (with out VERY limited budget)
got a 2 opteron , 4gbs ECC Buffered RAM, H/w RAID 5 controller /w 4 146gb scsi. 2 dvd rewriters, lovely case, £200 worth of hp hardware network card, aswell as the 2 1gbps onboard broadcoms. 600Wpsu etc... £1200 (about a year and a half ago)
were building another one this year, with just one processor, 2gb RAM, with 2tb of storage, with a RAID 5 HW controller. £200 H/W based network card etc. basically just as a fast storage area, £800 delivered
Just how we do things here, not enough money for any other options....
the rackmounted cases are too much ALONE without any hardware...
We have a dell poweredge which the first server we built up is actually higher spec.. but the poweredge cost £5k, 5 x more for less ram less processor less hdd... infact we had to add another drive so it cost us more then that!!!
