I've had an HP Data Vault x510 for about seven years and it's served me well but is due for replacement. It's a fairly small box at around 25x25x13; most of that is for the four drive bays. I'm hoping to find something of a similar size with maybe 2-4 bays but I'm not having much luck.
Dell and Lenovo only seem to have full-sized towers and rack-mount machines. HP (or at least the NZ site) apparently hides servers well as I wasn't able to find anything at all!
Does anyone know whether something similar to the HP x510 is available from another vendor?
Also, I see that a few people now use a NAS instead of a full-blown server. It's my assumption that they're fairly "dumb" devices but it's worth checking: Can I install additional services (such as Subversion) onto a typical NAS or are they exclusively for file storage?
As you can probably tell, I'm a bit out of touch with this sort of thing :)
Thanks for any comments.
