 SpiceWorks is a free network monitoring software and community with a following of over 5M IT Pros who call themselves Spiceheads.  Denis Kelley, a Spicehead, reviews the HP ProLiant MicroServer Gen8. See his full article here




In his article he provides his final verdict on the system stating the following:


The Verdict

The HP ProLiant Gen8 MicroServer is a great product for its cost.  The thought that kept occurring to me was that this was a NAS that wants to be enterprise equipment. I guess it is still trying to find its identity. On one hand you have multiple NICs, iLO4, Intelligent Provisioning, and a RAID controller; on the other you have flimsy HD caddies & screws and limited options for RAM. This kit is perfect for a single SMB server, an awesome test lab, or a virtual host for non-critical servers. For the entry price of a bit over $500, I’m thinking of getting one for my home.


Thank you Denis for providing the community with your overview!
