Great VMware ESXi server
Pros: This is a great server for running VMware ESXi 5.1. The G6 is quieter and uses less power than the G5 series. Lot's of memory and PCIe slots. The on-board P410i RAID controller with 256MB cache is perfect for building a large VMFS volume with LFF SAS disks. 4 cores with hyperthreading is plenty for a small office with a handful of VMs. You'll obviously want to add more RAM to the base system in this kind of deployment. Buy the spare fan kit, update the BIOS and you'll have a fairly quite system compared other servers.
Cons: You'll likely want to add a battery to the RAID's cache in order to get the disk performance benefits on the write side. Needs an additional iLO license for the remote console and advanced power management functions. No PCI-X slots unless you purchase the riser kit separately.
Other Thoughts: System has VT-d and supports VMware's VMDirectPath. The system is picky about which SATA ports can be used for booting. Not a problem on ESXi because we boot from a USB stick on the motherboard and use the 6 disk SAS array exclusively for VM storage.

Nice Small Business Server
Pros: Runs great and is quiet compared to many other servers. Fast and cheap for what you get yet sturdy.
Cons: If you are using non-HP drives make sure you find and buy drive trays. The bays for this server come with blanks to fill up space and can't be used to mount drives. You need to buy the actual trays to mount the hard drive to and then be able to put in the bays.
Other Thoughts: Excellent little server except for the drive bay annoyance.
