I think my ex495 is defunct. Time for a new sever.

I need to recover all my files via stablebit drivepool and also looking to minimise costs. So what I have:

WHS 2011

6x HDs (1 as new system disk, 5 with duplicated data on)

1x esata drive enclosure

Licence for: StableBit Drivepool; Eset WHS2011 licence.

Thus, I'm looking for a 'barebones' (ish) machine to run the above on. That is, already have to OS + HDs - just need the hardware.

So I'm looking at this:

Would I be able to install WHS2011 on this?

If not or if there's better alternaitves, what would people recommend? Around the same price range.

Heck yes, that is a good machine, I got one like it on it had 8 gig memory.
I use it as a headless HTPC use it to do all my ripping/scanning/graphics/cloning/etc.
I put the OS on a ssd.

But if you have Win 10 clients you might want to look at this:

Good Luck
