I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

it looks quite promising I think the only problem seems its not like a real upgradable server its more like a blade series server so you cannot for instance later add a host bus adapter
so think about its a cheap blade setup for the sme market
