Dell C1100 vs HP DL380 G6? - Page 2

The C1100 as is supports SATA and SAS drives. The HP with 2.5" drive bays means you will be using expensive (and probably unnecessary, in home use) SAS drives, or SSDs instead of typical 7200 RPM SATA drives. So storage for the HP will be more costly. I guess it depends on what your storage needs will be though.

Correct I meant a full raid controller.

That might be true. What I meant is that they are availabe to purchase from the UK and hence I can avoid to pay import taxes (much cheaper to buy the more expensive UK Dell C1100 then to have it shipped and imported from USA). smile.gif

Good input. I have still not decided what I want. Will be looking into if I want (certainly I do not need it, but it might be fun to experiment with them) 2.5" SAS or if I should stick with 3.5" SATA drives. I am after low power usage so I will be looking into which server draws less (2.5" probably uses less power?) and then if i want dual redundant PSU or not. The 2U HP DL380 G6 seems to have better expansion abilities, dunno if I need that or not yet.
Thanks for the input!

SAS drives having lower power consumption is not true. SAS vs SATA vs SCSI is all about the interface, but what matters is the spindle speed. 7200RPM 3.5" SATA drie will draw about 3-5w, where as 10K RPM SAS drives drawm about 6-8w, and 15K SAS drives pull 12-16w.

I thought that 2.5" have less physical mass that need to be moved and hence less power usage. Good to know, will keep that in mind.

2.5" 5400 RPM drive, sure. However, with a 10K or 15K RPM they need a more powerful motor so they can spin faster.

Will keep that in consideration. Would be nice if they sold a refurbished HP DL380 G6 with the 3.5" bays instead. The original "convert" pack (2.5" to 3.5" bays) is to expensive for my needs. Looking at the Dell C1100 now. Thanks.
