How old is my server?

| September 4, 2009 | 2 Comments

One of the things you regularly get asked as a server guy is the specifications of your server, as well as the age of your server – more relevant if you want to move/refresh your estate. It might also be useful if you’re seeking to virtualize anything with ‘no capex’ or older than 2005 for example.

With this in mind, I’ve put together the data below, please note the actual age will depend on the specification as well as the purchase date.

The dates noted are the dates listed relate to the different versions/updates to the ‘quickspecs’. on the different parts of the HP support and quickpecs site.

Please note this is meant as a guide, I’ve been careful, but there could be mistakes so do double check before quoting me.

The ‘averaged date’ is where I’ve set an average age of the server or manufacture year.

  • For example the DL360 G1 quickspecs were updated between late December 2000 and 2002, for this server, I’ve set the averaged date as 2002.

You’ll see what I mean below. I’ll upload this to the documentation site later today.

I’ve just done HP, I’ll need to work on Dell/IBM.
