    IF you can find them. I've been in the market for an HP Proliant Microserver for a little while, and they're very difficult to track down, in Canada at least. I've found two online retailers, and that's it.

    And no doubt significantly cheaper, too.

    Rip off Canada strikes again! Just like the Dell T110.

    There are a few retailers around but you're right, it is more expensive here. Just look at the shopbot prices :S

    SuperMicro has a line of ~$200 server motherboards that support up to 6 SATA3 drives, dual Gb NICs, fanless dual cose Atom CPU, and up to 4GB RAM. They also have onboard RAID, but Openfiler uses software RAID, so hardware RAID isn't needed. You can also load/run Openfiler on a USB stick or SD card and leave the drives for pure storage.

    not sure if there's a bug in the latest release of OF, because it wont detect all of my 8 drives, unless i raid them. It will only see 6 drives individually, and the the last 2 as if it's on a raid array. This is on the LSI controller btw. Currently I have them in 2 raid arrays and they're working fine in OF

    I had OpenIndiana installed on it before but took it off to installed OF to get ready for Eric Chen's VMware class Hopefully he'll still be using OF or else i have to wipe it again

    Once you've added a case and a decent psu, it really is barely worth the hassle of a self-build. My dedicated ESXi box was that way. It's a great machine, but wasn't worth the hours spent checking compatibility and hunting down parts vs. just buying a server - even taking into account I get all hardware at cost.

    Unfortunately none of our suppliers have the Microserver available.

    Incidentally, for my home use I use NexentaStor.

    I agree. But once again, nothing beat the experience of building your own and watch everything boot up in front of your own eyes yeah im nerdy like that

    This is true, and tailoring your system to you is ultimately pretty rewarding.

    Still, I want a Microserver, dang it!

    I checked the site last night and there was 9 on waiting list. Just checked it again and the #climbed to 10. If this # keep rising, they'll probably have to open a 2nd class like last time
