HP ProLiant ML370 G5

HP ProLiant ML370 G5

The first thing you notice about the <a href="http://h10010.www1.hp.com/wwpc/uk/en/sm/WF25a/521-525-358265-358265-12083545-12572504.html">HP ProLiant ML370 G5</a> is its size. It’s massive, with room for not just the latest dual-core Xeon processors but enough memory, storage and other options to suit a wide range of applications. Because it’s very solidly built, the huge desk-side tower housing the ML370 is extremely heavy, requiring two people to lift it. It can also be rack mounted if required, although it ends up 5U high and the rack would need to be well anchored to prevent it tipping &mdash; especially if you choose any of the optional extras. Our review model, for example, came with a redundant second power supply and an additional bank of hot-swap fans. You can also add a lot of storage, making for a very heavy and, at times, quite noisy system.

Dell PowerEdge 1950

Dell PowerEdge 1950

A 2-way SMP server designed to accommodate Intel dual-core Xeon processors, the <a href="http://www1.euro.dell.com/content/products/productdetails.aspx/pedge_1950?c=uk&cs=RC1050265&l=en&s=pad">PowerEdge 1950</a> sits at the top of Dell’s 1U rack-mount range. It’s not a particularly expandable solution &mdash; there simply isn’t room for lots of adapters or disks &mdash; but that hasn’t stopped Dell’s designers cramming a lot in to create a server that can be used for a variety of purposes.
