Designed to deliver solid performance and mission-critical reliability for customer applications, these Supermicro uni-processor 1U rack servers support the latest Xeon processor E5-2600/E5-1600 family and deliver additional levels of performance, power-efficiency and reliability.
This review is from: SUPERMICRO SYS-5017R-MF 1U Rackmount Server Barebone LGA 2011 Intel C602 DDR3 1600/1333/1066
Pros: This box works beautifully paired with a quad core Xeon and 8gb of RAM and 2 250GB laptop drives (need to purchase the bracket to allow this) in mirrored RAID to function as an edge firewall running the pfsense 2.1 distribution. This setup is way more powerful than a Cisco ASA. I've got two of these set up identically with the second in sync with the primary acting as a failover standby. had these runnign for 5 months strong now, never an issue.
Cons: Make sure you tighten the screws on the brackets holding them to the case before you rack mount them or you will have a bit of sag.
Other Thoughts: these made my deployment of pfSense as our organizations edge firewalls a breeze.
