My server is a Dell PowerEdge R410 with two Xeon CPUs, 32GB of RAM, and four disks
set up as a pair of ZFS mirrors.  Works great.

My main complaint has nothing to do with FreeBSD.  The iDRAC remote console software only
works with Java 6 or older so I have to keep a deliberately not-updated old PC around to
connect to it.
