    Re: What to do with 2 servers i got

    Im currently having a probelm with my one of my blades, as they dont have much storage so i will probably use them to host game servers and the other servers for data storage, i may even pull the ram from the "broken" one and have 8gb in total.
    For running a game server which would be better
    1. 32gb ram 2 2.6ghz dual core
    2. 8gb ram 2 2.6ghz quad core (may be higher clock not sure)

    If those are going to be home servers, I noticed those ProLiant servers have iLO; therefore, you can turn them on and off remotely when not in use to save on power.
    Use whatever OS or desktop works for you. Backup your computer regularly, and definitely before upgrading, partitioning, or installing an OS.

    The 2 dual-core and 2 quad-core, you may what to consider Ubuntu OpenStack if you can get more RAM. Then run whatever OS you need for each of the Virtual Machines on the servers.
