    Hello everybody.
    I am in the lookout for a nice 2U Server Chassis with at least 3 external or hotswap SATA HDD.
    I have done some ggogling but oh man, there are hundreds of thousands out there so I thought to come here and ask if anybody got something similir to what I want and where to get it.
    Thanks to you all for your time.
    Albert, C

    HP Proliant DL380. I use these almost exclusively for all small-medium requirements. Small, but they pack a punch, are relatively cheap and have enough expandability for pretty much any workload up to medium. Got five of them running as my ESX hosts at work - they run like a dream.

    I meant just the chassis mate. I have googled the one you mentioned and oh boy, the cheapest one I could find was just over £1.300.00 with no HDD.
    Thanks anyways for your advise.

    From when I had my business I seem to remember I could get stuff from Spire Technology but they are trade only.

    Try talking to a local computer shop to see if they deal with them. If so, you may be able to get hold of something.

    Hi,

    Had this deal come through in an email this morning. I realise that this is a 1U rack mount server and not a 2U chassis only but thought it worth mentioning as for £450 it seemed quite reasonable for a rack mount with 2GB of memory and 2 x 1TB SATA HD's. I've used this company (ServersPlus) quite a few times before and have found them good.

    LENOVO ThinkServer RS110 1U Rack Server Bundle with 2GB memory upgrade and 2 x 1TB Simple-Swap Hard-Drives.

    Hope this helps.

    Cheers,


    Simon
