HP MediaSmart chassis vs. Intel SS4000-E RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Has anyone noticed the familiarity between the HP MediaSmart Chassis and the Intel SS4000-E NAS?


    I was researching chassis and ran across the SS4200-E which is apparently the Fujitsu-Siemens Scaleo WHS.  Anyway I tripped over the SS4200-E predecessor and low and behold the SS4000-E looks a whole lot like the HP MediaSmart Server.


    Has anyone else ran across a micro chassis similar to that of the HP MediaSmart Server?  I'm looking for something small and similar to the HP for my home brew server.


    I presently have used the HP MediaVaults and I thought about using a suped-up HP Slimline s7320n (2GB RAM and 1.8 GHz Pentium M, Hot Swap SATA drive bay in place of the old DVDRW, 2x500GB HDD).  I had the beta WHS running on it and it seemed fine.  Didn't appear to be sluggish.


    Any other ideas?
