I have a Poweredge T410 that I no longer have a use for. I was thinking of renting it out. How much should i rent it out for?


Here are the specs:




32 GB of ram, 2 Xeon processors (ill put the xeon specs when i get back, for now i do not know them), 6x 3.5 hot plug HDD bay with 2 x 5.25” drive bays. It has 3 installed HDDs at 1.5tb as well as an external backup unit. It has dual 1GbE NIC ports, 2 500-something watt PSUs and is running Windows Server 2008 r2 (a preference) but i would also be fine with installing any distro of linux on it as well. I don't want to have to pay for windows server 2012 or 2016.


I am able to keep it up at 100% up time (with very few exceptions, like power outages)


Should i rent it out? If so, for how much? Thanks!

$100/M would be my guess.
