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!
