    I'm selling my now redundant HP ML115 Proliant Server.

    The specs are:

    AMD Opteron™ 1352 Quad Core Processor 2.10 GHz
    2 x 2GB Crucial ECC RAM
    1TB Samsung SATA HD
    DVD writer
    Icy Dock Mobile Rack Black MB123SK
    Windows Home Server v1 OEM including media and licence key
    The server has GB ethernet onboard but the server has an additional GB ethernet card as the onboard one doesn't support jumbo frames.

    The server was previously used as my media archive and live TV server which you can read about on my blog http://www.worksmarternotharder.org.uk/blog/tv-the-smarter-way

    The server has been kept in my garage so will have some marks on the case, I can take some actual photographs of the server if requested.

    Please note that as with most servers when you initially boot them up the fan runs at warp speed for approximately 30 seconds - 1 minute and then drops down to normal levels.

    I live in Stone, work in Warrington and am visiting Hull next weekend (14th Dec/15th Dec) so could potentially arrange collection / delivery in these areas.

    At the moment I don't think I can ship it but if there's no interest then I will investigate boxing it up and shipping costs.

    Price £150

    No interest?

    For me the 2 great things about Windows Home Server (WHS) was:

    1) Client backups. Each night the server wakes up your sleeping computers, backups them up and then puts them back to sleep again.

    2) Ability to put various sized disks into the server and for it to present as 1 giant disk. You could put 4 1TB disks in and it would show as have drive D with 4TB. You then setup various folder shares for common things like photos, music, films etc and if they're important you can turn on duplication. This means that when you save a file into photos it will put the file on to 2 of the disks in the server. This means that should a single disk fail you can simply remove it and put another disk in and the duplication would happen again. The obvious advantage of this over RAID is that the drives don't need to be a matched pair.

    I used Crashplan and another disk in the ICY dock to make nightly backups of my very important files and would rotate that disk weekly to an off site location.

    Also willing to accept bitcoins for the server :D
