Compaq DL360 1u Rack Mount Server

Ok, so I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to purchase this off Trade Me when I saw it.

Heck, how often do you get a 1u rack mount server for under $100 that is a reasonable spec machine. Dual processor with a gig of ram.

It’s now running the web sites I have and doing a very good job of it so far. It seems to handle running Fedora reasonably well and the installation was no cause for concern. It sounds a bit like a jet because of the fans in it, so it’s been nick named "The Jet" I would hate to imagine the noise of a rack of these things.

I was watching an IBM xServer which went for $255 but unfortunately it was a little out of the budget at the time.
