I bought a dl380 server and the noise is very high to stay inside my home. Can i deploy the server outside (not in balcony, outside) in a box of metal? I need a specialist opinion because i can lose money, warranty and my server; this is the only solution available for me so has anybody tried something like this?

This question came from our site for Ubuntu users and developers.
You could but:
That considered, I think you would have to spend a ridiculous amount of money on this project. Outdoor, weather/climate-proofed racks are extremely specialist equipment.
Buy an indoor cabinet and some sound-absorbing foam. Bolt it to the most solid thing in the building. Then forget about it with the saving you could probably afford to take a few holidays.
