Comes with 1U case, installed motherboard, installed power supply, rail kit, CPU heatsink, power cable, and two installed sata cables.
Tons of IO ports and storage options
It's power-efficient and more than powerful enough for a small- to medium-sized business router/firewall appliance. Could also make a great low-powered VM node for things that don't need a lot of CPU. Dedicated IPMI network port means you don't need a direct KVM connection nor will you chew up a regular network port for system management duties. The 4x onboard Intel-based NIC ports are nice for router/firewall duty. Those same NIC ports can be trunked/aggregated for VM duty, as well.
- Fits 12 U.2/SATA HDD in the front. Most 1U servers only have 10. - Three available PCIe slots plus one OCP 3.0 slot. Many other 1U NVMe servers require the use of some PCIe slots to serve the backplate, leaving you with only one or even no available PCIe slot.
Ordered this model based on the desire to optimize power consumption, noise, and heat management within my environment. The support for the latest Skylake Xeon E3 v5 CPUs, combined with flexible disk configuration options, an expansion slot, and up to 64GB of RAM makes for a home-friendly virtualization host. The SuperMicro IPMI/KVM solution offers all of the necessary functionality for setup and management without the expensive licenses normally associated with other brands/manufacturers. Unit fits flawlessly in standard 2 and 4 post racks. Exceptionally quiet compared to other 1U servers. Value proposition for case, motherboard, power supply and heatsink included with this kit cannot be beat!
1. Small size. 2. Core included
+ Compact form factor, good quality + Great specs/capacity + Plenty of network interfaces + IPMI
