Upcoming NAS and VMware Converged Build

Just a little update,  I currently have on order a new build.  

To save power, I decided to converge my Xeon D NAS and my VMware Build.

Just a teaser of the parts include 

SuperMicro Xeon D Board with D-1537 

64GB DDR4

6X 6TB He6 Sata Hard Drives

2.2TB HGST VIRIDENT FLASHMAX II

At only 35W for the Xeon with 8 cores and 16 threads I’ll save a bit of money on power alone.  I plan on experimenting with a variety of storage technologies via VMs in this build to balance performance and max storage capacity.
