Zacate for Home Servers

Built one up and am quite impressed. Replaces the old Sempron-based server, which has now become the backup server.

Looks decent although I'd rather see Zacate in products such as this: HP Proliant MicroServer

I know it'll be a while before mechanical drives will even start to come close to saturating SATA2 3.0 Gb/s but having all SATA3 6.0 Gb/s ports on a storage server gives me warm fuzzies.

By the way, I think you meant 70 MB/s. 70 GB/s (560 Gb/s) is way higher than gigabit speeds.

Thanks, made the edit.

As for the ProLiant MicroServers, those have AMD processors today. An APU would not really add much because the GPU would sit idle so often - I would rather have the CPU resources. I only went with an APU as an experiment.

What do the severs do for you in your home network?

I'm full on ignorant here, I have quite a few devices running off my router (not as many as you though) two desktops, three laptops, two iPads, and a few other assorted things such as iTouches and a Wii.

What role do the severs play? Are they for storage?

Would you mind showing the CPU when saturating the network connection?

Backup your PCs, share files, remote desktop.
Once again...

Backup, serving media, file consolidation, remote access, development web server, etc.

The main server (Zacate) is doing all of the major work, the backup server (HP) is literally a backup server, all data mirrored. The NAS devices are for file migration, archiving, etc. The main workstation also runs VMs so I can try different things out.

Yeah, let me try to figure that out. it is running some jobs right now.

Didn't make that recommendation because of the APU. Indeed, the extra GPU chops is useless in a server that won't even be connected to a display. Rather, it's the low-power and native SATA3 6.0Gb/s ports I'm after. I know the ProLiant has a Neo 36L CPU paired with a mobile version of the 780G chipset. I have two of them at home. Power consumption is very low. It's low enough that I don't think moving to Zacate would introduce any power savings. However, it will be nice to get a better feature set (SATA3 and USB3) than what is currently available.

I'm curious, though, when you said you prefer the CPU resources on the ProLiant - does that mean the dual-core E-350 1.6 GHz is slower than even a dual-core Athlon II running at 1.3 GHz?

I guess I should have restated - I prefer that more of the silicon is dedicated to CPU because that is all I need. I have never tested to see if there is any difference, I don't have a proliant microserver.

As for USB 3 / SATA 3, there are no USB devices connected to the server and the drive is a SATA 2 drive. I am guessing that the network is going to be the bottleneck, not the HD.

JF, I have to say, that is indeed 1 very nice server!
