What to do with 2 old Itanium Servers
I have 2 old Dell PowerEdge 7250 servers that are in good working condition. Both have dual Itaniums, 4GB of RAM and 3 x 136GB SCSI drives with a MegaRAID supported RAID card. Question is, what can I do with them??
The servers are pretty big but they can only take 3 drives, which is a bit disappointing for a 4U unit. However we do have a 17TB iSCSI SAN so storage isn't too much of a problem.
I was thinking of using UML (User Mode Linux) or similar and virtualising for internal use, but with them being Itanium powered I'm a little unsure of what software would support it. Any ideas would be appreciated.
