Physical Specifications for The Bitcoin Foundation's Servers

Tuesday, January 14th, 2020

The Bitcoin Foundation currently owns two physical servers. Neither of which are in use currently, and will be auctioned off via auctionbot, sometime in the near future. There will be a separate auction for each machine below.

Below are the technical specifications of each machine for sale. I'll refer to each as Server-A (shipping from U.S.) and Server-B (shipping from Uruguay).

Server-A ships from U.S.:
1U Dell PowerEdge R610
2 x Intel Xeon E5640 (2.66 Ghz Quad Core)
48Gb RAM
No hard drives included. Six drive bays for 2.5" SAS or SATA.
4 x 1 Gigabit NIC
DVD Optical Drive
Dual 717 Watt Power Supplies
No rails included

Server-B Ships from Uruguay:
1U Dell PowerEdge R610
2 x Intel Xeon E5640 (2.66 Ghz Quad Core)
48Gb RAM
No hard drives included. Six drive bays for 2.5" SAS or SATA.
4 x 1 Gigabit NIC
DVD Optical Drive
Dual 502 Watt Power Supplies
2 extra 502 Watt Power Supplies (~5 lbs. each)
Rails are included

You can expect that shipping weight for a single server is going to be around 50 lbs. / 23 kg.

The buyer takes possession at their own expense. This may be expensive depending on how far it needs to ship to your location. Be advised!
