    Im not sure about the exact model on it, but win server 2008 is the OS running. I am actually planning to backup the server but im using an external drive with usb connection but it takes 3-4 days to backup the whole system. One reason (i think) is because the server's usb port is only using 1.0 usb port. Any other option to backup the whole system faster? Thanks a lot for the help :-)

    If you have HP or IBM blade servers, the best way to add additional USB ports is to add in a "PCI Expansion blade". This gives a single server additional PCIe ports that can be filled with a USB card. Unfortunately, short of using a network-attached USB hub, there's no way to manually add additional USB ports to the entire chassis.
