Where I use to work we never bought Cisco MS Server's but instead only
the HP equivalent...

Never had a problem.

Yes like you said, much cheaper !

In these times of shrinking budgets, I was wondering if anyone is using
a non-Cisco approved server for the CUCM?  


Cisco and HP created a part number, 470064-887, which is equivalent to
the MCS 7845H2.  It's still available from HP but it looks like it has a
discontinued CPU(5140) and the RAID controller is a P400/256 instead of
a P400/512.  


I received a quote for a HP DL-380 G5 server that has a newer CPU and
RAID controller that is almost half the price of the Cisco "approved"


I'm pretty sure the CUCM would run fine, in fact we're running a 5
server cluster on HP DL-380 G5 servers using the E5345 CPU's in our test
lab but I wanted to see if anyone has encountered any problems.
