Bought a server.

Today was an interesting day. At the end of the day I purchased a server. It is called PRIMERGY RX220 and it is made by Fujitsu-Siemens. It has two Opteron 265’s at 1.8 GHz and 1 GB of ram. It is not the fastest server in the world in fact it is quite old it is 8 years old. But for my intensions I think it is powerful enough. The only thing that bothers me is that it supports max only 500 GB hard drives. I haven’t checked any bios updates, so maybe they have updated it. Hopefully it runs Windows Server 2012 R2 well enough because I got a free key from Dreamspark. If it doesn’t run well I probably install Ubuntu server or something lightweight like that. The main idea right now is to run it as webserver for this website – I think. I know that Elion’s update speed is like 1 Mbps but it beats my current hosting. If my dual wan thingy works maybe even maybe 2 Mbps but that is a stretch. Also idea - run it as file server.
It hasn’t arrived yet via mail, so I don’t even know if it works, so it is too early to make plans.
Ooh and I also got it for 7 euros so that made it clear why I bought it.
