Hi,

just thought I would let everyone know about this
deal on this potential storage server, if you've not seen it.

http://www.it247.com/product/1/XXHSUK23/612275-421-HP-ProLiant-MicroServer-Dual-Core-1-3Ghz-AMD-Athlon-II.html

It's 212.82 inc. VAT and then 100 pounds cash back from HP, so pretty cheap
for a something with 4 hot-swap drive bays with low power consumption and
fairly quiet.

No optical drive, but a handy little chassis to install freenas or similar on
and add some cheap 1TB drives to.

The cashback was supposed to end today, but now extended to end of January.

needless to say, i've picked one up and installed FreeBSD 8.2RC1 on with
ZFS across 4-drives (only 1 160GB drive is included).

Cheers,
Mark
