We’re very excited to have a nice new (to us) 1U server headed out way:
Still deciding whether this machine will become our primary DB server, or serve as a higher-end VM server for us. Either way, in addition to this one, we have one more server in our near future and hopefully we’ll be set for a while after that :-).
Processor: Two (2) Intel® Xeon® Quad Core Processor X5460 3.16GHz Harpertown 12M cache 1333MHz FSB
X5460 single CPU benchmarks (so the new server should be roughly twice as fast as these benchmarks…)
RAM: 8GB [Four (4) 2048mb D558CDual In-Line Memory Module, 2G, 667M, 256X72, 8, 240, 2RX8
(to be upgraded to 24GB total)
Power Supply: Two (2) P424D Power Supply, 670W, PMBUS Delta
Storage: 15K SAS drive for OS, SSD for data
Remote access: DRAC5 card (Dell Remote Access Card) installed
Ethernet: Gigabit ethernet network ports
The best part: this machine should provide some great additional speed and capability for all our bloggers :-).
