I've been running a home built low-power server for nearly 2 years now.
Based on this Mobo: http://linitx.com/viewproduct.php?prodid=11212
which I've downclocked to 1Ghz.
I've installed it a fairly cheap mini-itx case (I think it cost £14 -
new - on eBay)
It runs Linux (currently Ubuntu Server 8.10)
It also runs:
my business phone system (Asterisk)
Samba for our family shared network
Acts as a local development server with LAMP (For Joomla! Wordpress et
al) SVN Code repository
It also ran Java/Tomcat and Alfresco and a Calendar Server for a time.
It runs headless.
I wrote about it in a series of blog posts when I was intending to stick
Untangle on it too - but in the end I never bothered with UT although
that's a great product IMHO.
You can read about it here if you like (from the bottom-up):
Any of the VIA or Atom based devices would be fine for more than most
There are new Atoms about to appear based on smaller die (35nm) and a
new chipset on the Mobo which is less power hungry than the original
Intel 845 which they supplied.
Hope this helps.
