Just received my new home Server. The current (old) server is running 24/7, consuming 180W. The new server consumes 24W. Calculating the business case for this new ‘server’ was pretty easy. There is that moment where you suddenly realize that this is an investment that’s going to earn itself.
So what did I order? an Asrock mini PC with Intel i3 processor and 4GB of memory. The OS will run on an Intel 40GB SSD drive.
