    Hardware Spec Question

    Hi guys,

    I am looking for a server with some very specific specifications, and I'm hoping I can get some suggestions here.

    4 Hotplug Sata HDD slots.
    Raid 5 capable on 3 HDD with 1 as spare.
    1 U Rackmount
    Lights Out Management
    Gigabit NIC
    1.8GHz+ Processor
    4 GB+ RAM

    HP Hardware preferred but not a deal-breaker.

    Does anybody have any suggestions?
    Can't think of anything profound or witty.

    I was asking for advice on hardware to run Ubuntu server, don't see a problem asking for feedback.

    HP do the following:

    How about the Dell PowerEdge R610 or 410 lines? If HP is preferred and 1U, you're not going to get anything different from the DL320 or DL360 lines at a decent price. If you really want to buy a server, you'll want to save up the extra few hundred dollars to add a second processor, and run more than 4GB of RAM.

    I couldn't justify spending a few thousand dollars with the minimum hardware specs you mentioned previously. In my opinion, either option it out fairly well, or save a boatload of money and just build a desktop that you put on a shelf in your rack and take up 4U of space.
