[Déballage] Réception du ProLiant MicroServer Gen8

Indignes que nous sommes de vous laisser dans l’attente haletante d’un excellent article sur un sujet de fond… Ou pas.

Serveur Maison : Migration Terminée !

Voici un comparatif des spécifications techniques : Alors pourquoi changer ? Monsta's Musings. Well here are the photos you have all been waiting for – a world exclusive of the HP Microserver G8 with all the internal photos to answer all the questions you were after, and a full 7 days before the Official HP product announcement.

Monsta's Musings

First off, we have inside the door. We see a completely different design in the G8 from the outgoing G7. The biggest changes are the stock HP Non-Hot Plug LFF Drive caddies, some of you may already be familiar with these from the DL120 servers. Also the front of the server is closed with meshed steel panelling. This is quite the change from the open fronted G7 where you could open the door to gain access to not only the hard disks in the cage, but also the internal USB port.

The Home Server Show Podcast. TUTO: NAS SYNOLOGY DSM 5 SUR SERVEUR HP N54L. Vous cherchez un NAS pour stocker vos données en réseau, vous devez installer plusieurs disques durs dedans ou vous avez besoin d’une solution évolutive.


Les NAS Synology, dont la réputation n’est plus à faire, s’avèrent rapidement onéreux, dès lors qu’ils possèdent plusieurs baies de stockage. La solution proposée ici se révèle assez économique. En effet, HP propose un produit très complet, à prix compétitif, le presque célèbre serveur HP N54L , dont la référence complète est « HP ProLiant MicroServer G7 N54L 1P 2GB-U Non-hot Plug SATA 250GB 150W PS Server« The Schoondoggy Gen8 Drive Mount for the HP ProLiant Gen8 MicroServer First Look. By: John Stutsman Not long ago, Schoondoggy asked a few of us to beta test preproduction versions of his drive mount bracket for the HP ProLiant Gen8 MicroServer.

The Schoondoggy Gen8 Drive Mount for the HP ProLiant Gen8 MicroServer First Look

Except for the placement of the holes to attach the Schoondoggy Gen8 Drive Mount (“SGDM”) to the PSU – which was easily fixed with my Dremel – the SGDM is perfect in design simplicity coupled with high flexibility. With the SGDM I could mount two 2.5” drives (like VelociRaptors or the 2.5” WD Red’s), or 2.5” SSD’s, or a single thin 3.5” drive – all the while still leaving the ODD bay open for the Optical Disk Drive or one or two SSD’s! I can disconnect the drive cage SAS cable and attach a SFF-8087 to the system board giving me two SATA III ports (SATA cables 1 & 2 off the SFF-8087) and two SATA II ports (SATA cables 3 & 4 off the SFF-8087) all controlled by the HP Dynamic Smart Array B120i RAID Controller. The HP ProLiant Gen8 MicroServer is a fun machine to work with — but the SGDM takes it to a whole new level! Supplemental Cooling for my Gen8 MicroServer and P222.

By: John Stutsman In preparation for the Home Server Show Meetup on September 20, 2014 (see “Meetup 2014 Registration and Info”) I wanted to show participants modifications I had made to my HP ProLiant Gen8 MicroServer as well as, “hopefully”, an interesting demonstration of how it all works together.

Supplemental Cooling for my Gen8 MicroServer and P222

This blog posting is intended to summarize the basics of what I’ve done with my Machine as demonstrated at the #BestMeetUpEver. Preparing to Install WHS2011 on HP ProLiant Gen8 MicroServer. HP Proliant MicroServer. Viewing page 7 of 7 pages.

Previous 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 It was inevitable that SPCR modify the MicroServer for lower noise. What are the usual methods to reduce noise in an existing computer? Reduce the transfer of vibration from the hard drives to the chassis. HP Microserver G8 is here! I have an external esata/usb3 drive plugged in to that card and it worked fine on esata but its only a single drive housing.

The card does state it does port multiplier. That card is now in the N54L which is modded to have 5 drive capacity internally plus then 2 external eSATA housings (without multiplier) if needed. Can see no reason why the 4TB drives won't work. I have a pair of WD RED 4TB but can't try them as they are in my N54L at the moment with data on.

SSD Performance with HP Microserver – Benchmarks When Enabling AHCI. I’m a sucker when it comes to buying HP’s Microserver, with the current cashback deals on the N54L (and formerly the N40L & N36L) they are just too cheap to resist clicking that ‘Add To Cart’ button!

SSD Performance with HP Microserver – Benchmarks When Enabling AHCI

They are a great bit of kit, compact, quiet and can turn their hand to many duties; media server, test web/db server, source control box, file server etc etc. Their performance exceeds what you’d expect by just looking at the spec sheet. I just bought another N54L box as they are heavily reduced at the moment due to the new Gen8 Intel-based Microservers that are hitting the market. For this one, I wanted to use it as a file server and therefore wanted to maximise disk space. HP Microserver G8 is here!
