HP Gen8 VS ML10 V2


Recommended Posts

I already have a Synology DS214play, I want to use this as a backup server.


Now I want to add a better server with XPEnology. I'm looking at the GEN8 with the G1610t and the ML10 V2 with the G3240.


Which one to choose? The ML10 is newer and faster. The GEN8 should work fine with XPEnology, but how about the ML10? Are all the drivers already included in the bootimage? Like the network driver.


Any advice? Thanks!

Don't know about the Smart Array which is used but the Chipset (C222) should be no problem including the NIC. I have two server boards (1x C222 & 1x C224) running on XPEnology bare metal without any problems. I recommend to switch to the standard S-ATA mode or use a more reliable controller/HBA. I'm no fan of HP's Smart Array controllers although I run around 20 ProLiants.
