New server coming along nicely

Posted by Bill Bradford on Nov 21, 2010

Thanks to donations from supporters and people whose websites I host, the hardware for the new server is in place and the Comcast Business Class line with static IPs was installed yesterday. The current server will remain in-place until the end of the year, giving me plenty of time to migrate content without having to rush. I will also be hosting two “machines” (converted to VMs) for a friend on this system; he has paid for a good part of the hardware and is paying for the Comcast installation fee in exchange.

Antec Sonata Proto case, Corsair VX450 power supply, Gigabyte motherboard, AMD Athlon II x4 640 CPU, 8GB RAM, and pairs of WD Caviar Blue 250G and Caviar Green 1TB drives each mirrored in a RAID-1 configuration.

    Great! It’s amazing how far we’ve progressed. I remember when ohno was a certain SPARCstation 5… 🙂

    Long live the independent servers!
