I was looking at purchasing an IBM X3550 M2 with dual quad core xeon 2.4ghz and 16gb ram.
I wanted to know if this would work for an openmediavault setup? I don't have any experience with server racks I did see it said vga out so I can work on it with a monitor till I can remote in.
I am familiar with putty and I use archlinux and centOS on different machines.
I will ultimately be:
I may see if I can set it up to do a gateway/router config. I used to use a separate desktop for pfsense.
this will come with everything but drives. I know its probably overkill for what I need but the price is cheaper than I can find budget computers for. Also it is used.
