$299 [USED] File Server - 24 Bay SuperMicro Opteron Servers w/24 Port RAID - PatK - 2013-07-07

Looks like this deal gets another round, wonder what people here thought about it?

Includes all Trays / Dual Redundant PSU / Opteron Motherboard / RAM / RAID cards to support 24 drives / IMPI / Would seem to be a cheaper & better solution?

They look good, but can anyone tell me if those 8 port sata cards have drivers for current kernels? The manufacturer seem to only promise suse and redhat drivers, and even they look pretty old.

Just got mine 3 weeks ago and I've had no issues using Slackware-based distro called UnRaid and also Debian/Ubuntu using ZFS with minimal issues.

Easiest way to get these servers is to google "Tamsolutions" and email them to be put on the waiting list for the next round of 24-bay servers.

Visit this thread for modifications to be done to these servers cause stock, they are louder than a jet taking off Smile

This thread has a TON of information on this over at AVSforum:

You can call TAMsolution directly and order from them and most people do that.
Edit: Guy above me got to it first lol....
