Forums now on new server

Posted in: Forum News by Rob on 05/11/2010

ServerAt the beginning of October, we migrated the forums from a rather aging server which was struggling to cope with the number of visitors that the forums now receive. The move was carried out over the weekend of 02/03 October and touch wood, all seems to be running smoothly. The old server was located in Sydney which was great for Australian visitors, but resulted in a slightly laggy feel for the UK members. To this effect, the new server is now based in the US, where access time from the UK & Australia should be broadly similar. The new server specs are below:

CPU: Intel Core i7 920 (2.66GHZ 8MB - HT - Triple Channel)
Primary Disk:Hardware Raid-10
4x73GB 15k RPM SAS 16MB Cache
Backup Drive: 500GB 7.2k RPM SATAII 16MB Cache
Public Port Speed : 1000Mbs Public
Public Bandwidth : 10TB Premium Transfer
Battery Back Up : Battery Backup Unit (BBU)
Chassis : Hot-Swappable SuperMicro Rackmount
Hardware RAID Controller : Adaptec 5405 PCIe - 1.2GHZ Dual Core - 256MB Cache
