greetings...can you recommend a low-powered cpu/motherboard combo for web server (i.e. next gen d525mw)?

Hi:

Putting together a low-powered web server for development purposes that I'd like to leave on 24/7. Was interested in the D525MW cpu/motherboard system, but seems like it's end-of-life and rather difficult to purchase new. Can anyone suggest a "next generation" combo that will deliver similar specs and be more current and, therefore, easier to order at roughly the same price?

Thanks,

Eddie...

Hello Eddie, welcome to Intel Communities.

The following URL will show you the list of http://ark.intel.com/products/series/49428/Intel-Desktop-Boards-with-Intel-Atom-Processors Intel® Desktop Boards with Intel® Atom™ Processors. You will be able to see that the only Lauched motherboard is the D2500CC. That board is still under support. http://ark.intel.com/products/series/49428/Intel-Desktop-Boards-with-Intel-Atom-Processors Intel® Desktop Boards with Intel® Atom™ Processors

There are some Server Boards that you can use, however they use not low powered as the D2500cc http://ark.intel.com/compare/67302,71384,71387,71386,71385,60637 ARK | Compare Intel® Products

 

In addition these are Gigabyte boards with onboard CPU http://www.gigabyte.com/products/list.aspx?s=42&jid=0&p=2&v=30 GIGABYTE - Motherboard - CPU Onboard

Eddie,

Another option is to look at an Intel® NUC or similar product. There is a wide array of Intel® NUC products available with Intel® Atom™, Intel® Celeron®, Intel® Core™ i3 and Intel® Core™ i5 processors. In the low-power space, you can look at the http://ark.intel.com/products/78953/Intel-NUC-Kit-DN2820FYKH Intel® NUC Kit DN2820FYKH, which is outfitted with a 7.5 Watt, dual-core Intel® Celeron® processor N2820 (or N2830), or go even lower with the http://ark.intel.com/products/78577/Intel-NUC-Kit-DE3815TYKHE Intel® NUC Kit DE3815TYKHE, which is outfitted with a 5 Watt, single-core Intel® Atom™ processor E3815.

Thanks for the recommendations:

After further research, I decided to go with the ASUS J1900I-C. Running debian and plan on installing Apache once I've hardened the server. Will eventually run IIS in dual boot to learn IIS as well.

Thanks again...

Eddie
