    Just upgraded from a NUC i5 1.2GHz w/ 12GB RAM, 256GB SSD + 1TB data to a Dell PowerEdge T320 from work. Xeon 1.9GHz hex core w/ 96GB RAM, 3x256GB SSD & 3x1TB 7200 RAID 5 arrays.

    Kind of makes my laptop less necessary...I can go back to nesting things on a server instead of carrying around my lab and not using it.

    Although, whenever I get a proper license, I'll likely go back to a few NUCs and a NAS. But, for now, this will suffice. Especially with the price.

    So I got an ibm x3550 m3 from work. I'm not sure if it's dual 8 thread or dual 12 thread, but it will have 192gb of ram. I only have three hdd cages right now, so I'll need to order more. I play on running a 240gb ssd and two 1tb reds in raid 1 for now. Should have it up and running over the weekend.

    Anyone have any know how if running esxi 6.5 on one of these?
