I don't have a server, i have to make do with my PC. However i would sure as hell love one! I rent server space off an Overseas company (cheapest i found at the time and i got a good deal), i would dearly love to host my own website!
Also, is it Pig Resistant? I have a bit of an issue with my current Rig, it keeps getting stolen by Pigs!
Reason For Editing: I forgot to untick the watch box and made some typos... Derp!
Well currently I'm backing up to a number of external HD's plugged into my desktop. Adding one of this little beauty to the network would make it a lot easier and safer to manage the backups, not to mention it'd make a lovely little media server, another job my desktop is currently doing.
Current Kit: 5 year old Dell Laptop with a fried battery 1TB external drive permanently connected for media storage several other external drives with data backups in various states of updatedness 7 year old custom build P4 desktop backup PC that hardly ever gets turned on
How will the HP Microserver benefit my setup: To start with I can start to get serious again about maintaining my data properly I can start to re-allocate some of the duties my laptop currently struggles with to a dedicated server and not have to worry about the other half messing things up too much Bring it on
I recently decommissioned my old home server because it is over 10 years old and was making some very odd noises. I have lots of computers in the house, but no central store for my data, or web applications. I have made some space for a new server!
I currently use a kurobox pro great hackable NAS but sadly ARM cpu is a bit annoying for certain programs that need x86 compatibility also a little slow for certain operations this HP miocroserver would be handy :)
