I saw few topics about rackmount solutions for CasparCG. Many of you is looking for 1U solution, for example. I would like to share my experience with Supermicro server. We bought this server for our lab. We are still testing lot of hardware which can be used for CasparCG. The tests with this specific server are succesfull, till today.
Chassis: SC113TQ-600WB (https://www.supermicro.com/products/chassis/1U/113/SC113TQ-600W.cfm?parts=SHOW#jump
) (8x Hot-swap 2.5" SAS/SATA HDD bays)
Dimensions: Height 43mm, Width 437mm and Depth is 597mm.
Motherboard: X10SRW-F ( https://www.supermicro.com/products/motherboard/xeon/c600/X10SRW-F.cfm
Processor: Intel Xeon E5-1620 v4 3,5Ghz
RAM: 2x 8GB DDR4 ECC
HDD: 2x Intel SSD 800GB Raid 0 (0,1,5,10 are supported on motherboard, hw raid)
GPU: Quadro K2200 (on the pictures is GeForce 210, just for few tests, but it is working)
SDI Card: Blackmagic decklink 4K Extreme (next week we will start the tests with Quad2 and then Bluefish Supernova)
LAN: 2x Intel LAN I350 (teaming is possible)
On motherboard is also COM port.
About power supply redundancy. This specific chassis is supporting just one power supply (I hope :) ). But they have some others which are able to have 2 power supplies.
It is looking very cool, the SDI outputs (Fill and Key) are working fine without problem.
Bellow you can see the pictures:

if you have also some experience with 1RU / 2RU solutions we will be glad if you will share it :)
