  • Summary: I have two of these machines set up. One running CentOS-7 and acting as a L.A.M.P. server. The other set up as a time clock server Running Win7 Pro and MS SQL Server. Both installations were a breeze to set up. I only had to install RAM and HDD's and install the OS.

  • Cons: No out of the box RAID support. No dual power supply support.
