Itx Nas/Server Build
Thinking of buying this board
and this case.
Machines going to be a NAS but I also want the ability to run a few small VM's that mostly idle (E.g my seafile server)
Does anyone have any experience of the Asrock server boards? I know supermicro also do a C2750 based board but I don't believe it has the extra sata ports the Asrock has.
Any alternative I should be looking at?
Needs plenty of Sata ports and ideally IPMI with KVMoIP or at a minimum the ability to auto power-on when AC power is applied (I have an external KVMoIP if needed).
Also after a fairly low power usage on the board/cpu if possible as I suspect when fully populated the drives alone will be fairly power hungry I'd rather keep the total power usage as low as possible.
Not worried about H/W raid as I'd prefer to expose all the drives as JBOD and manage them in software.
