We tried comparing the cheapest servers of each manufacturer

In order to extend the service currently provided by GIGAZINE, it became necessary to purchase and examine the actual machine of the test server rather than the virtual environment in the end, so we tried out the best of each representative server maker at the moment We examined each low price server.

Since we are only comparing each with the minimum minimum configuration, it seems that the result will differ if you actually put together the options you need, but if you move anyway anyway it will do, it will do well if the load rises sequentially If you aim to use it as load balancing, it seems to be quite helpful.

Details are as below.
Below are all tax-inclusive prices at the moment and no shipping fee included. Since it is a thing that I copied while watching a site, pamphlet of a PDF file, etc., there may be a case that it is actually different. When referring to it is self-responsibility, let's inquire properly to the manufacturer of the vendor beforehand before purchasing ... ....

First from NEC who marked the lowest price this time. It's oddly cheap as it's in the campaign, but that should be that as well and there is no HDD. If HDD can be procured separately cheaply, it is quite a bargain.

■ Express5800 / 110Gd: Product Outline | G Model | PC Server | NEC 8th Avenue

Model name:N8100-1279Y Express5800 / 110Gd (C / 2.93G (256)) diskless model

price:17,850 yen(Usually 34,000 yen)

Next is HP, this is also the campaign price. Unlike NEC, even the lowest configuration can be used for the time being, and the scalability is also high. Since I can use PCI Express x16, if I mention graphic board etc., it seems that it is likely to become main machine as usual. That is wonderful. What is this.

■ HP Japan - HP ProLiant ML 115 - Showcase

Next is DELL. There is no CD-ROM drive, but option selection is possible at the time of purchase. It gets steadily higher as you stick together.

■ PowerEdge SC440

Model name:Dell PowerEdge SC 440 (400 units only 160GB HDD & amp; 512MB memory loaded special price package)

device:CD-ROM up to 48 times faster playback
Price: 37,800 yen

Next is Fujitsu. Since there is no HDD, there is a necessity of somehow but it may be interesting that it is made quiet. Is the point that the guarantee is 3 years even though others are one year old?

■ PC Server PRIMERGY (Primary)> TX150 S5 / TX150W S5 Description: Fujitsu

In summary it will look like this.

As of June 13, 2007

Second place: HP (25,200 yen)
3rd place: DELL (23,800 yen)
4th place: IBM (37,800 yen)
5th place: Fujitsu (47,250 yen)

The following Hitachi is actually in 5th place, but has already finished selling.

■ Hitachi Advanced Server HA 8000 series: Products

device:3.5-inch FDD (1.44 MB / 720 KB) × 1 drive, CD-ROM drive
Price: 46,800 yen

If you think at a more practical level, HP's "Hop · Step · Jump CampaignIn the campaign such as "campaign like 400,000 yen will reach the model with dual core Opteron, so if HP focuses on CPU speed HP may be balanced and the affinity may be high.

Also, we are selling servers at this levelLogical effectsIs it stupid? Because it becomes likely to cut out 30,000 yen if it comes with the minimum configuration.
