What are some cool things I can do with my Dell Poweredge 750 server?

Posted 21 June 2011 - 09:55 AM

So at my internship last summer I they gave me an old server to play with. During my internship I installed Windows Server 2003 on it, then VMWare and ran some virtual machines from it and created a little Sharepoint farm. The server was actually totally retired but it's still fully functional and I think it has enough hardware muscle to do some pretty cool things, plus I could use the knowledge. I'm just wondering what were some other cool things I could do with my server as I'm pretty new to all of it. I have access to a lot of free software through my school, dreamspark, etc.

Thanks!

I second making it a dedicated server for games, I suggest running Team Fortress 2! :D
