Quicker than I expected but here it is ...
... what we've all been waiting for ...
... the new server
(Quickly avoids thorn bottles and rotten fruit lol)
Ok, not what you guys have been waiting for but it's porn to me
There we have it. We've got
Dual Quad Core Xeon processors
18GB of RAM
Around a half a Terabyte of useable disk space
and all crammed into something 1.7 inches high
9 tiny double rotor fans to keep this bugger cool
And don't underestimate them .. after power on it sounded like we were under the flight path at Heathrow lol
RAM, glorious RAM 18GB's worth of the stuff lol
Ok, that's over and done with then. I assure you, I feel suitably ashamed
This new box is going to run like **** off a shovel whilst also giving massive resources for the new site and all the image hosting stuff
Just need to run some tests on it, build it all up and then ship it down to the new datacentre. Testing over xmas and hopefully live in the new year
Wish they did the bloody scrappage scheme on these things as well lol.
