Its time to upgrade hardware

My aging Intel Xeon E3-1241 is starting to show its age, with dockers, and VM running I need more core count.


I've settled on a Intel Xeon Silver 4210 Processor, its now in hand.  So its down to the mother board.


I've narrowed it down to two,  I'm looking for two 10G Nic, 8 SATA, 2 x M.2 (Cache).  And I'm currently running my VMs, and Dockers off of a PCIe Optain Drive.


Future expansion I'd expect to have PCI network cards added.


My Options are

SuperMicro MBD-X11SPI-TF-O  NewEgg Page


ASRock EPC621D8A NewEgg Link

I would pick the ASRock for no reason other than the PCIe slots being open-ended so you have more flexibility.
