I'm in the process of spec'ing out some dual opteron (of course! 1u servers. I'm currently looking at Tyan Transport GX28 setups and wondered if anyone had any good/bad recommendations about them (particularly airflow).

Also, I have to say that being in the UK I'm struggling to find a good supplier for them (I can buy Intels-a-plenty) but trying to buy good Opteron 1u's are like trying to find hens-teeth in the UK...any recommendations?

Thanks in advance.

The GX28 is listed as an AMD Thermally Tested Server Solutions' ">http://www.amd.com/us-en/Proce...%5E8819%5E9398,00.html and their is a pretty extensive review at HardwareZone GX28 Review' ">http://www.hardwarezone.com/ar...view.php?cid=25&id=857

I suppose you're looking for a "whitebox" type solution, but you should be able to get a 1U server from one of the big three vendors (UK specific links for IBM & Sun):

Sun V20z' ">http://uk.sun.com/productsserv...3d~standard~ws-nocache
IBM e325 & e326' ">http://www.pc.ibm.com/europe/eserver/opteron.html?uk
HP DL145' ">http://h40059.www4.hp.com/prod...oliantdl145/index.html

But there are a lot of vendors with server solutions, some of which listed on the AMD web page, AMD Opteron™ Processor – Server Partners' ">http://www.amd.com/us-en/Proce..._288_3091_3929,00.html

A quick google shows a lot of UK vendors with GX28, or try the Tyan "Where to Buy" in Europe link' ">http://www.tyan.com/products/html/europe.html
