    Exclamation New SG Server

    It's official... We have a new server that will be replacing the current SG web server. We are also moving to a new data center, I'll keep you updated on the progress.

    Here are the server specs:

    Server box/MoBo: Tyan GT24 1U rackmount (Transport GT24 B2891G24U4H, with TYAN Thunder K8SRE S2891G2NR MoBo, 500W PSU), supports dual Opterons, up to 4 hot-swappable Ultra320 SCSI HDDs, up to 16GB Registered ECC DDR400 RAM, 2 Broadcom Gigabit network ports.
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16856152014
    http://tyan.com/products/html/gt24b2891_spec.html
    CPUs (2 ea.): 2x AMD Dual-core Opterons 270 Italy (2GHz, 1MB L2 cache per core, socket 940).
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103552
    http://www.amd.com/us-en/Processors/...6_8804,00.html
    RAM (4GB): 4x CORSAIR 1GB 184-Pin DDR SDRAM ECC Registered DDR 400 (model# CM72SD1024RLP-3200)
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145310
    http://corsair.com/corsair/products/...2sd1024rlp.pdf
    HDDs: 2x Seagate Cheetah 10K.7 - ST373207LC (8MB buffer, new generation drives with background media scan, enhanced ECC, 1,400,000 hrs MTBF), configured in RAID 1.
    http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/Produc...uctCode=101576
    http://www.seagate.com/cda/products/...84,650,00.html
    OS: Fedora Core 6 http://fedora.redhat.com/


    The server is already assembled, and I just delivered it to a local Tampa DC today (Powermedium.com). They have multihomed bandwidth, and host most Wikipedia servers, among others. Will ask for some traces when it is up and running, hopefully later today.
    Linux is user friendly, it's just picky about its friends...
    Disclaimer: Please use caution when opening messages, my grasp on reality may have shaken loose during transmission (going on rusty memory circuits).

    Nice system. (except for Fedora..I lean more toward bsd or debian for production servers)
    I'm gonna mis the old datacenter, it's 10 min from my house. When I had high latency I could always walk to McLean and view my last post!

    Thanks Mark. I've had it for a while at my place and it's stable and fast so far, we'll see how it handles the real-world load soon

    You're right on target... I'm a bit partial to Red Hat/Fedora, and wanted something cutting edge. Also, moving down to Tampa may be a bit of a tradeoff for latency, it certainly can't compete with MAE East, but they are connected to at least 3 major backbones, so I hope we'll be ok

    Awesome!

    Let me know how you like that colo. I've been keeping my eye out for the right deal so my colleague and I can get our mail/web server into a nicer home.

    Business Class RoadRunner just won't cut it too much longer for us, especially now that we have several sites and mail domains running from our server. I just brought in a guy that is a web marketing guru who promises to bring lots of traffic our way and if that happens, we could have issues. We're having a meeting next Friday evening to discuss our future plans for the server, etc.

    I bookmarked the site for your new colo, thanks.

    Good luck w/ the server move.

    Me too ... CPU time will not be an issue with 4 cores for sure, and we're doubling RAM.
