    Where to get hardware?

    Where is the best place to get hardware?

    I am just moving 5-6 servers from TP to colocation. I will be colocating at the GNAX data center.

    So I am looking at places to buy servers, switches, remote reboot and anything else I will need

    Dell are cheap if you like Intel chips...

    Ebay can provide you with bargains on switches and remote reboot and so on.... but make sure you trust the person you are buying from!

    www.RackmountMicro.com is one of my personal favorite companies that sells excellent quality servers. As for switches and remote reboot strips I'd look on ebay, they have new/barely used stuff selling at great prices.
    Thanks,

    if you need just one piece of hardware, no better place than pricewatch.com.

    Rackmountsetc.com offers pretty cheap single processor systems, i've also heard good things about rackmountmicro.

    You can't go wrong with apaq at http://www.apaqdigital.com.

    Real quality servers and few people know more than Chong does about setting up a server. He's also based in Atlanta so it's easy delivery to GNAX.
