Lenono/IBM x3550 M3/M4

#1 Post by Whitieiii » Sat Feb 09, 2019 6:03 pm

Thinking about picking up an x3550 M3/M4 and want to know if anyone has any experience with them? I've priced out a few with upgrade parts and they come out to being cheaper than a custom built 2u rack computer with desktop computer parts... I'm wanting to run a bunch of vms for controllers, file storage, media servers and such and thinking of using proxmox for the base as esxi isn't an option for home usage and don't want windows server 2016 essentials... What do you think? I'm looking at only running it with one power supply and maybe one CPU... I've got a dedicated place to put it so it won't be loud and in the way..
