Nachibes (II)

Nachibes (II) is an HP Enterprise EC200a server.

This machine carries the (II) designation informally, because there was a previous machine named nachibes, a ThinkPad X24, which was a shell-box for a while.

This machine was purchased after several weeks of workshopping EC200a Ideas. In addition, I was workshopping some ideas on how to get a machine that was quieter than TECT.

The machine has a 2.2GHz Xeon D 1518, 32GB (soon 64) of Registered DDR4 memory, and a 2TB Samsung 970 Evo installed. This machine will have Windows Server 2019 Datacenter Edition installed and some of the virtual machines form TECT will be moved to it.
