Hi all,

I know small hardware for pfsense/opnsense/firewall of choice comes up every now and then here…

I was shopping around for an unlock key for supermicro extended KVM features and found this store, and got curious about their Supermicro “compact server” section.  First, I saw just a ton of small stuff that I didn’t know Supermicro even made, some at prices competitive to the no-name mini-itx systems:


But this monster, look at this thing:


2x 10gb/s ethernet, 6x 1Gb/s ethernet, and room for more.  Includes IPMI/IP-KVM and processor (add drive and RAM).  Under $700.

Just thought I’d share, I know there are supermicro fans here and I had no idea SM made these tiny boxes.
