Hi, we are an ISP in my town and we need like 4 servers currently for 4 different tasks.

1st Server - I currently use a VPS for 50$ a month from wiredtree.com since 3 years. Im thinking to get a server and host it in house, so, all the websites will be hosted from that server itself.

2nd Server - Log Server for ISP Customers, SpeedTest Host Server

3rd Server - Plex Movie Database

4th Server - Torrent Caching Server



For 1st and 2nd , I finalized this,

For 3rd and 4th, I finalized this,
http://www.ebay.com/itm/HP-ProLiant...0-24GB-RAM-No-2-5-HD-P410i-512MB/181844945656


Im only confused about how to install SATA Internal HDD to those servers.
So, can someone help me about it ?

There is drive cages in the front. You pull the lever and take it out insert a drive and pop it back in

3.5" won't fit into a 2.5" hole
Yes!
I mean isn't there a way, we can get adapters and install the internal 4TB SATA to the adapter and connect it to the connectors of the 2.5 hole and job done ?
I understand the drives have to stay outside the server.

There is no way of installing an internal drive in either of the servers. There packaged very tightly inside
