Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I need to find out the mean time between failures for a dell R710, specifically motherboard failure would be appreciated - I need this for a rough calculation of how often we will need to replace servers. Also, I know realistically these things will probably just keep on running well beyond the date they'll be replaced, but I need this to help with uptime requirement worst case scenarios.

You might need to go to dell direct on this one but please report back what you find! –  Antitribu Feb 23 '12 at 20:04
Those are pretty heavy-duty and high-end. I'd expect they'd last you a verrrry long time. –  Bigbio2002 Mar 23 '12 at 16:15
