I would like to get some small hardware for installing clearOS gateway on it. It should be rack mountable using additional rack mounting hardware (as the gateway hardware wont take full rack width). It should have two network interface of course. I saw something like this been used for brand IPS/UTM providers (checkpoint/sonicwall), but i cannot find any distributor for such hardware. So the question is, any chance to get something like this from any retail?

Accepted AnswerShaun EllensohnOfflineSure my Solution isn't that low but it is cheaper now that it was when i bought it
I use a (used to be IBM) Lenovo x3250 M4 which seems to do the job just fine. I did however upgrade the Ram to 32Gb, other than that it is still pretty much stock.
It has 2 Disk Slots so Space could end up being an issue... However it is just my "frontend" server and i have a couple of other servers behind it, each doing there own thing.
Another Idea i had was to use something smaller, and hook it up to an iscsi disk running from a NAS, but haven't gone there yet.
