Those who know what computers are, they know what this toy is for. This server is a compromise of computing power / resources and power economics. It has a hardware RAID and bay for 4 3.5 "SATA drives. RAID provides data storage security. The project assumes an analysis of the use of MikroServer as a workstation, file server (file backup), router, NAS, etc. Work on starting next elements is underway on OPENBSD system.

The cost of initiating the project of the new HP Proliant MicroServer G7 N40Lw server with RAID1 version is about $500. The project was financed with the own funds of club members. IT work was done by the members of the club: Zbyszek SP5DXM, Zygi SP5ELA, Jacek SQ5BPF. The project envisages maintaining the server installation for a period of 5 years. The total cost of the project is about $2000 PLN.
