72GB in the main server with a few vm's and plex/crashplan. Main VM used for video editing. 

40GB in the backup server, which also has a few vm's/plex/crashplan.

12GB in the other 2 servers which only host a single vm.

Old Server is at 16GB new server is 48GB but I can max that one out at 384GB which I may do, depends on if I need it more or not.

I have 16GB of Registered ECC DDR2 RAM in a 4X4GB configuration, but have never come close to using it all. I recently reconfigured my drive arrangement form 8X4TB drives and 2X2TB drives down to 3X2TB drives, involving the need to transfer 3TB of the files off of the server onto an external HDD attached to my computer over a gigabit network connection and the server never used more than 29% of the available RAM

Bought a used SuperMicro box with 64 GB installed. this was a move from 24 GB on previous hardware. I really feel the improvement and the stability improved.

16GB for me, I run two VM's, five Dockers and I have NEVER needed more RAM than that.

 

8GB for a Windows VM (Always On)

2GB for Remix OS (Always On)

6GB for MCMyAdmin2 Docker (Dockers only use what they need at the moment and I only have 3 Players)

Sickrage Docker

sabnzbd Docker

Plex Docker

ProFTPd Plugin

 

Love my Server but 384GB!! LMFAO I remember when 512MB was the funk! ;-)

16GB for me with running some dockers and plugins and have never run into any problems so far with lack of memory. Highest usage I have seen is 3GB.

16GB as noted in .sig

 

Seeing how much others have, I'm a tad jealous, but really, I don't know that I need it. CrashPlan backing up nearly 1 million files at 2.7TB ran me out of room when I had only 8GB. Everything's been smooth since the upgrade.

32GB, the max the board will take. Currently using next to nothing. I think I'm in love with this product. For my purposes it seems to "just work", and using next to no resources in the process. Outstanding!

 

We'll see how it goes the next couple of weeks, but my guess is a pro license is in my near future.

Iteration 1

AMD Athlon XP 2600+

2GB DDR 266 ram

 

Iteration 2

Dual Socket Xeon E5410

8GB DDR2 667 ECC ram

 

Iteration 3

Dual Socket Xeon E5410

32GB DDR2 667 ECC ram

 

I guess I upgrade in multiples of 4.

32 gb ecc ddr3... because that's all my motherboard supports, running Xeon E3-1225v3 (quad core, but 1 thread a core, so only 4 threads... kinda wish I had more, especially if I ever start using my windows 10 VM).. on a Dell proprietary motherboard with an Intel C226 chipset (Gutted from a Dell Poweredge T20) now in a node 804 case, with 2 x 4tb WD Red, 2 x 3tb WD Red, 2 x 2tb WD Gold, and 2 x 2tb WD Blue, and a Crucial MX300 750gb SSD.. with a flashed Dell Perc H310 to support all the HDs.  All powered by a Seasonic Prime Titanium SSSR-750TD PSU. 

 

Also got an Intel X540-T2 10Gbit dual network card about to be delivered... not sure if it'll make any difference, but figured I'd at least try it out.

 

Waiting for a good deal on a second .5-1tb SSD to complete my storage, got the 750gb Crucial for $100 last November... wishing I had bought 2.  After that, I think this system is good to go.

 

Have also considered getting a Supermicro Server motherboard, but unless I want to buy all new RAM and CPU, not sure if it would be much of an upgrade considering the LGA1150 socket DDR3 boards are Intel C222 or C224 chipset... and just doesn't seem too practical based on having a C226 already (even if it is a dell proprietary board).

16GB DRR4 non-ECC

 

Mostly use the server for virtualization and various microservices in docker containers. Might upgrade to 32GB once RAM prices become sane again. With the current setup, I have to shut down most of my other VMs so I can give my render slave 8GB of RAM and I'd probably even want more than that in the long run.
