Dell PowerEdge 2950 Gen III Servers are fully refurbished and come standard with a 2 Year Warranty! Our Used Dell PowerEdge 2950 Gen 3 2U Servers (6-Port) 6 HDD Bays (3.5" Hard Drive Bays) were recently pulled from a climate controlled facility. The exterior of the Dell PowerEdge 2950 server has minor scuffs and scratches consistent with cabinet mounting, server stacking and normal use. At SaveMyServer.com we stand behind our used dell servers.
2950 Server Refurbish Process: Server Refurbishing process consists of both physical appearance of the server chassis and components, as well as full diagnostics. We do not use ghost images. They are unreliable across multiple configurations and third party components. When a server goes out our door, we know that it is ready for a full production environment.
2950 Testing and Build Process: The SaveMyServer in-housed tech department starts by setting up the bios, configuring the controllers, build an array, update the drivers and firmware. We will install Windows 2016 Standard Evaluation Edition for testing and warranty purposes. We perform a clean install on each refurbished server. We also perform the Dell OpenManage PowerEdge updates, bringing the components like the system bios, raid controller, and other Dell drivers up to their latest version.
Ordered this as my first "Server" so i could play with it and get all my files in one place.
It works good so far, no complaints, and even if there are hardware issues, 2 Yr Warranty!
My total was 500 bucks.
6x300tb 15k SAS drives at raid 5 = about 1.2tb.
Great vmware server. If you aren't in a hurry for disk operations it does the job. Comes with 2008R2 and raid 5.
Using vmware and veeam 9 backup and replication.
Internally there are 2 Sata ports on the motherboard. I have 2 4tb drives plugged in and use an external power source.
Makes for a large datastore addition for vm backups.
Replicate to the 2nd sata drive and you have a fair backup system.
I also repllicate to an off site farm once per week for vm's and twice a day for database dumps.
Keep in mind the internal ports are not sata III so you will get about 50mBs or so. I can live with that.
I'm running just 4 vms on it, with Jobboss, ftpserver, door security (focalpoint) and an old act! database server.
I have 2 of them now, then 2nd will be used for replication to run overnight.
I've had the first 2950 for a year and it's been solid.
They are loud and run rather hot so keep 'em on a cool rack.
My next 2 servers will be the R720 or 30's with nearline sas drives.
This is great server. I am running windows 2012 with hyper v with 5 VMs .Its good server, only draw back is noisy. You can not leave it on , once done playing around you have to turn this off.
We have a 2950 already and were looking for a mix of spare parts (more RAM and drives) and a spare option for one of the drives and the server itself.
This fit the bill, was shipped quickly and nicely packed. A very good transaction.
Top notch customer service, fair pricing and a Server that looks brand new. I would not hesitate to recommend savemyserver.com, they are very professional and do a great job reconditioning Servers. Plus a two year warranty! Wow these guys do business like I do fair and honest. Thanks for getting my Server out so quick, great packing job and all around great service.
