Hi, I am try to consolidate 2 SC836E1 servers to single 4U server something like SC847 with single CPU motherboard if possiable. The 2 servers currently running ESXI with HBA pass-through to FreeNAS. Both have mixed of SAS and SATA. The new server will be a physical FreeNAS server to present iSCSI(SSD for VM hosts) and SMB share. ISCSI will be on 40Gb links, directly connect to other hosts. SMB will be on 10Gb link(s) to the core switch.
Please let me know if you have any good suggestion on the server/chassis that wont brake my bank. Thanks.
