Terabyte Linux Server Under Eight Grand



Via NewsForge, ServerWatch took a look at the $7,389 Pogo Linux StorageWare 3800:

The Pogo Linux StorageWare 3800 has the usual basics: a dual processor Xeon Super Micro X5DP8-GL motherboard with up to eight GB of RAM, a 40G boot disk, Red Hat Linux 8.0, two built-in 10/100 Ethernet connections, and dual power supplies in a 3u chassis. But it also has something unusual — in addition to the boot drive, the 3800 has eight 203.9G ATA hard drives attached to a 3Ware RAID controller in a RAID5 configuration, with a formatted capacity of a little over 1.2 terabytes (1.4 TB raw).
