Off topic to some but relevant to others

Looking to setup a small ( micro even ) baremetal lab for Openstack / Tripleo / Kolla

Comparing the Intel NUC to the Gigabyte Brix for costs and support

Is there any other ones people are using? Maybe some MAC Mini's or?

Hello Mike,

     I got 3 Dell SC1435 Dual quad core AMDs w/16gb ram each, and bought some 2.5 drives for them. It has worked out great, total cost on my part was $400 servers and drives.
