Purchased in 2008 from adverts.ie, with the intention of using it as a second desktop machine.
With the prospect of severus moving to CSD it was suggested that we should have a second backup server locally. Thunder was chosen for this because it had a decent hardware raid card, and there was no budget to buy a new server.
