I have had this idea of using a server as a workstation at my work for a while now, currently I am trying to get 2GPUs to work in a DL380G7 (or Gen6) so I CPU power can be shared and there will be 2 workstations in one chassis. (put a hypervisor on it and pass the GPUs to the 2 guest operating systems.)
The current specs of the machine are:
In case you were wondering what kind of speed you can expect when you put 8 of those SSDs in raid 60 on an HP P410I controller

The post is extremely slow but that is ok as the machine can stay on at all times or start scheduled just before work.
There are some issues preventing this from working right now:
- The HP server turns up it's fans when you put in an PCI-e GPU, which means the server suddendly isn't quiet anymore.
HP actually has really amazing and smart fan management, this means the 360 (with lower power CPUs) and the 380 can literally be quiet enough to operate in an office environment (albeit not under 100% contantly, but that is not going to happen)
- It seems like the second (physiscally 16x) PCI-e slot (which is right above the PSU) doesn't support GPUs, this will need some more testing.
This is my website on where I can put some projects/share some information with the rest of the world \o/
updgraded replaced my server (I run my webiste on this server too), here is a short overview of the specificatoins, for more information you can visit the about page!
Here is a short overview of the specifications of the system:
|-||CPU||Intel Core I5 7600|
|-||Ram||8 GB generic ram|
|-||Storage||5x 500GB HDD|
And some roles/features:
|-||Storage||Personal cloud project|
I decided to do something about my site again because as an IT student it wouldn't hurt if I had something to show off with ;), this site includes some links and I might try to keep some posts on here.
The total amount of IPv4 addresses is: 4,294,967,296 (2 to the power of 32), but a lot of these addresses cannot be used because they are used for other purposes, things like on local networks, and more.
As we can see table I put in here; You need 4 binary values to store the same amount of information as one Hexadecimal value, this is explained by the fact that we are working in different "base" math, Binary is base 2, there only are 2 possible states, either a 1 or 0, High or Low, On or Off. One hexadecimal value can have a total of 16 states, this is the reason it can store more information.
