    Required: UK based hardware for backup solutions.

    Hi There.

    We're about to purchase some hardware direct from Dell for backup solutions - but I'm just posting to see whether anyone can come up with anything suitable!

    As mentioned, this will be a server for Backup Solutions, looking for preferably 1U, but maximum 2U systems.

    -Processing power requirement is minimal, Core 2 Duo upwards is preferred but that's up for negotiation. (Intel only)

    -Memory requirement - 3-4GB

    -Hard disk capacity - minimum 2 Bays SATA, preferred 4 Bays. Hard disks not required as we'll probably be buying new disks to put in the machine, but I guess if you get in touch with what you've got we could negotiate.

    -Raid 10 setup is a must

    Other spec is pretty flexible, I'd prefer something such as HP, Dell, Super Micro (I've used these brands before) and a warranty of around 6 months is also preferred - but negotiable.

    Despite this being a backup server, I'm not looking for something found in a skip!

    Finally - UK location is a must, I guess European is also suitable but obviously shipping needs to come into the equation somewhere.

    Give Dale Woods at servernation.co.uk. Should be able to beat Dell. 1U form factor will definitely be doable
