Santa came early, and brought some servers.

I decided to get a head start on my new years resolution of cleaning up some of the cruft behind the scenes, and have been working to get some new hardware deployed.

Previously we were running on 5 webservers that were Opteron based and had a measily 2gb of ram each.

I managed to score us a sweet deal, and we're happy to announce that we're now running on "only" 3 brand new webservers with the following specs:

Dual Intel Xeon 5520 (Nehalem) Quadcore 2.27GHz CPUs
12gb DDR3 Memory
250gb WD RE3 Harddrive

Since these new machines are so much beefier than our old machines, we can do more with less physical machines, which is made of win.

Sounds like you guys should look into a Cray XT6...but then System may become unstoppable.

Congrats on the new hardware

Only 750gb of space? Seems like that would barely hold a backup.

Unless when you mean 'web server' you are specifically talking about the servers that deal with generating the pages.

Um, total storage across all of our servers is probably not much over a terabyte. Actual utilization is a lot lower. We don't actually use a lot of disk space really.

Hm, surprise to me. I would think a single backup of the database would be more than a terabyte, but I guess not.
