We¬† just spend a few days to assemble a server for our company to use in the next 5 years. The old one is a 1U supermicro chasis. The tag on it reads “2005″. yes it has a floppy drive on it.

We are not happy that the old server does not have vast storage capability, so we bough a Norco 4224 case that can hold 24 hard drives. If we put 2T drives into each bay, we will have a total storage of 48T bytes.

Plenty of storage for us. We are going to migrate many services to this new server in the near future.
