ria is now a 1U rackmount machine with 4 hot-swap drive bays. It's a Supermicro CSE-815TQ-600WB chassis with a Supermicro X9SCi-LN4F motherboard, Xeon E3-1270v2 CPU and 32G of RAM. Its main drive is a new 256GB Samsung 850 Pro SSD, and there is a refurbished HGST Ultrastar 3TB drive to hold backups of other machines. It replaced what I'm now calling oldria.

ria came about as the result of my need for more RAM in my gateway. The previous gateway was a D510 CPU which could only address 4G of RAM. While that's sufficient for gateway duties, I wanted to run more elaborate intrusion detection software and ZFS. I also wanted a rackmount chassis so I could remove the shelf from my rack and make room for some of my Middle Atlantic rackmount drawers.

Note that in the pricing below, I lumped the chassis, motherboard, CPU and RAM price into the chassis price because I bought them all at once.

As usual for my headless machines, I'm running FreeBSD.
