Subject: Anyone using IBM "OpenPower" eServers or similar?
Date: Wed, 21 Feb 2007 14:04:12 +0000
Hi there,

Is anyone using any of IBM's Power servers under Gentoo, please?  
Experiences?

I'm looking for a decent server for a client and thought I'd mail my  
local IBM supplier to see if they had any recommendations. I don't  
seem to be able to get a full price-list out of them, rather they're  
happy to quote for any model in IBM's confusingly large range. They  
have suggested an Intel Xeon-based Express x3200, but I wasn't sure  
if I might do better (more bang-per-buck?) going for IBM's own Power  
processors.

The sort of specification I have in mind is "low-end redundant", Load  
& data-throughput aren't going to be high but reliability is  
obviously important. The client probably doesn't need hot-swap hard- 
drives & PSUs but can afford to pay for the reassurance that they  
give him. I'm thinking hot-swappable SATA drives. More details of my  
requirements are at <http://article.gmane.org/gmane.linux.gentoo.user/ 
179014>.

I've been quoted £1100 for "Express x3200, D C Intel Xeon 3050  
2.13GHz/1066MHz, 2MB L2, 2x512MB, O/Bay HS SATA/SAS, CD-ROM 48x-20x,  
2x430W p/s", "Express 160GB HS SATA II (39M4522)", "Remote Supervisor  
Adapter II Slimline Refresh 1" & "3 Year Onsite Repair 9x5 Next  
Business Day (4362)" if that's any help.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions,

Stroller.
