Scaleable Server Board?

Postby Circa3000 » Thu Mar 04, 2010 5:41 pm

Hi all,

I've got a bunch of 1U EATX chassis w/ 250W PSUs and need a cost-effective/entry-level server board that can scale from budget web servers to beefier SQL servers, etc. Any recommendations?

Requirements:

- 1U height restriction
- up to EATX (12" x 13")
- up to 250W
- SATA RAID 1 (mirroring)
- 2 SATA ports
- Solid Windows 2008 R2 drivers & compatibility
- Virtualization capability (nice to have, if not expensive)

Intel's S5500BC is on my radar, but I was hoping to find something equivalent in the AMD camp. So far, I can't find anybody offering strong support for Windows 2008 R2.

Any recommendations are GREATLY appreciated. Thank you!!!
