Users who download and register a copy of Unitrends Enterprise Backup™ before February 14, 2013 will be entered to win home lab equipment.

The vSphere dream lab consists of 2 HP servers, HP network switch, NetGear ReadyNAS and the VMware, Microsoft & Unitrends software you need to get everything up and running.

I was able to find out some more detail on the hardware specifications:

  • HP ML110 G7 servers with Xeon quad-core 3.20 GHz CPU’s that support hyper-threading, this will look like 8 CPU cores to vSphere. These are awesome servers and expandable to 16GB memory. They also support all the vSphere advanced features that rely on specific hardware such as power features, Fault Tolerance and VMDirectPath. You can read the Quickspecs on them here.
  • HP V1410-16G Switch, this is a 16-port switch that support gigabit connections, you can read the specs on it here.
  • ReadyNAS Pro 2TB Storage system, you can read more about it here.

All in all a nice sweet lab setup, the contest runs from now until Feb. 14th so you have plenty of time to head over there and download and register your copy of Unitrends Enterprise Backup and enter for your chance to win.
