    7x Supermicro Servers FS/EOI (GlobalSwitch DC) - ideal VM workhorses
    The following servers are for sale (will be available from 15-20 Nov approx.) - Located at GlobalSwitch Sydney.

    5 x 1RU Supermicro 5016T-MTFB

    - Xeon 5620
    - 12Gb DDR3 (3x4Gb) ECC Reg
    - 4 x Seagate Cheetah 15K.7 300GB
    - Adaptec 5405 + 800T battery module

    Each of these servers currently hosts 100-200 shared hosting accounts and utilization average is < 10% ie. loads rarely go over 0.50, never any I/O waits and ram usage hovers around 3-4Gb (YMMV obviously). These would make excellent shared hosting boxes for someone looking to do it cheaply with last gen hardware OR as a nice little VM cloud.. I think these 5 servers could easily host 50-100 VMs.

    1 x 2RU Supermicro (unsure of exact model - but it's a superserver ie. supermicro case/board etc) It has redundant PSU, 24Gb ECC ram and Xeon E5606. 6 x 3TB WD Green (with firmware adjusted for no headparking).

    This server has been used with FreeNAS / ZFS (raid-z2) as a NAS box running off a USB stick. Some of the greens have developed a bad sector here and there but never failed and ZFS manages those bad sectors just fine (monthly scrubs complete without problems).

    Reserve is $999 on each server or get all 6 for $5500 and I'll throw in a Netscreen NS-25 firewall (1RU) and an older Supermicro 1RU / Xeon box also.

    Preference given to anyone who's currently colocated in Globalswitch for easy move or anyone in Sydney. But if you're from interstate you're welcome to come in but will need to arrange your own shipping/transport.

    Note: all Seagate drives are under 5Y manufacturer warranty so still have 1 year warranty left. Extremely low use servers (<10gb writes per month) so these drives still have a few years left in them.
