I am writing in for a little help with building a network server. I am currently in a Full Stack Web Development student and I am trying to hack together a small server with parts left over from a GPU based crypto currency mine. The purpose of this server is both educational and practical. This will be a small load server that will hold my personal projects, personal and small business website, and needs to be scaleable to test multi user media applications and act as a personal repository. I have the following equipment available.
1x Full size + 1 half size server case.
6x 4u empty Rosewell server cases setup to hold eight GPU’s each.
6x EVGA 1600 watt power supplies
1x Cisco ASA Router
1x Ubiquity Unifi Security Gateway Pro
1x Cisco SG300-28
1x Cisco SG200-26P
A Plethora of HDD’s/SSD’s
Again, I would like to build the system to be, as best as possible, upgradeable. I believe almost everything is here except a UPS and the actual server build. What would you all recommend for a UPD, motherboard, RAM, ect? Would I be better off just buying something assembled and used? If so, what would you all recommend?
Thanks in advance.
