You would make more money going into the hosting business and charging for website hosting than mining Smiley (or CPU coin mining)
This sounds like a good idea.

I can't think of any CPU only coins off the top of my head right now, but if you could use these servers to offer people a service (ex. VPN) then you might be able to make some money off of them.

I can't offer services where people have to log in, access etc, it's too much to maintain for what I have setup. The environment is not built for remote access, it is built only to offload/backup/fail over our hosting business.

We already do hosting, that's why I have the setup.

You won't be able to cover power costs imo...renting them out and buying btc is your best bet

Some CPU coins used to be pretty good profits (PTS) and a few others. Then trade them crap coins into BTC

PTS is almost dead now. I don't know what the CPU coin scene is now, I think FTC moved to an algo which is CPU optimized.

Well, I appreciate everyone's input and I guess the answer is to find something else to do with the hardware so thanks for your input.

Good luck to all.
