No, this is not possible in the sense of a "normal" CPU. You could use CUDA or a similar library if supported on your GPU chip, but that is not at all useful for general server tasks. However, most servers that are not designed for GPU computing have very weak GPUs and wouldn't offer any real benefit anyway.
First - Let's take a step back... Looking at the Ubuntu LTS information, 10.04 LTS is no longer supported by Canonical and I would not install new server workloads on it. I'd explore all other alternatives before I deployed 10.04 for anything that matters. Seriously. If the problem is Python 2.6. A better question is: How can I install Python 2.6 on Ubuntu ...
For something of this scale, use a separate drive or pair of drives for the OS. Perhaps the M.2 SSD slot is the most appropriate. Give ZFS the full disks and don't attempt to spread the OS across those drives. For home-scale, don't listen to all of the suggestions to get a ZIL and L2ARC. The ZIL is only useful for synchronous writes, and the L2ARC is ...
VMware will recognize your new hardware upon reboot. You won't need to make any changes to the ESXi configuration for the hardware changes you've described.
You have several choices: Cheap USB 2.0 stick: not recommended because they are slow and the writes will kill most of them pretty quickly, exception: a read-only system like SmartOS (for ZFS) or ESXi (no ZFS, just as an example) which only writes at bootup or once an hour and keeps everything else in RAM or your data pools. More expensive USB 3.0 stick ...
You shouldn't install that old Ubuntu OS on modern HP hardware. Use period-correct hardware (DL-series G7) or virtualize. Here's HP's Ubuntu support matrix.
Yes, there's a process for this. It's a weird one, and it takes a bit of patience, but please follow the steps listed at: HP ProLiant DL380 G7 servers will not POST If you have physical access to the server, you can try this sequence: Remove the power supply units and swap them. Test to see if the system will boot... If that doesn't ...
It seems that the power plug cables were not ok, I changed the power plug cables from the psu to the backplane, now everything is working - I was able to test 1,5Gb/s without a single disk I/O error. Still can't imagine how this could happen.
