I'm really tempted to get one of these things to run several Minecraft game servers. Right now I have a really good deal on a couple of VPSs which I use to run the game servers. Something like this could really give me room to expand with the extra memory and disk space. I'm really just not sure how dedicated cores on an L5420 compare to shared cores on something like an E5-2620.

There are so many variables that it is difficult to compare a shared/VPS environment with a dedicated environment.

We have several customers who use these servers for Minecraft and have said that it works great.

That's what I was thinking. I'll keep in mind that you have some customers who have been happily running Minecraft on their server.

At the risk of sounding like I'm upsetting you away from Catalyst :p ...

The L5420 caves faster than the E5-2620 as a VPS node. As a single purpose node, it's a beastly CPU and it'll put out some serious performance.

While the L5420 cores are older than the E5-2620s, they're still perfectly awesome workhorses suitable for almost any work.  I guarantee you it'll be perfectly fine and I can recommend qps's services (although I no longer have a service with them).

Remember Jarland, we still do have a single Dual L5420 node in service at the moment ;)

We have quite a few Dual Xeon L5420 in service for OpenVZ, Xen, and KVM VPS nodes (as do many of our customers), and they are workhorses.  Obviously, an E5-2620 will hold more VPS, but the Dual L5420 is very capable.

I was thinking of putting three to four Minecraft servers on the L5420. In total the maximum amount of people they would have on at once would probably be around 30. 

I'm pretty sure that the L5420 could handle it, but the server runs so well right now at Catalyst I really don't want to waste any money trying something that might not work out quite as well. There are just so many factors that go into a system (processor architecture, hard drive performance, system bus performance, and so on.)

I may end up seeing what people have to say on a place like Minecraft Forum, I'm sure there are people who have their game servers on an L5420.

Yeah... No IRC, no go for me
We've been hit with a few Denial of Service attacks related to IRC activity, so that's why we've decided to not allow it.  

Anyone have any specs on what the disk read/write is like on these?
I ran this a while back:

http://serverbear.com/benchmark/2013/03/18/CdYns5xeaflmIh5W

Drive performance will vary depending on the specific brand/model drive that you receive, as we do use a few different brands/models.

Thanks for your interest.

Well, I just ordered one of them. Stock configuration with additional IP addresses. Hopefully it will get setup this afternoon.
