Memory Explosion!

PostAuthor: spool32 » Mon Aug 24, 2009 3:52 am


Thanks to your donations we've already been able to cover the $110 we needed in order to consider purchasing 4GB more RAM for the Beast. On top of that, an anonymous donor sent us 8GB more, for a total upgrade of 12GB! We are doubling the RAM in the Beast!

Thank you all so much! If you haven't donated yet, please don't feel like it's unneeded... the 4GB that FOIG is spending reserve cash on will costs us $200, leaving only around $50 in the reserves. That's not a lot! If you have the ability, please consider a donation, or even better, a $10 monthly donation. Six more monthly donators would put us in a position where we're guaranteed to meet our operating expenses for all but the hottest months of the year.

Please continue to give what you can!


For the hardware geeks out there, here's a breakdown of the specs on our beloved Beast:

Motherboard: Supermicro MBC-X7DCA-L-0 Dual LGA 771 Intel 5100
CPU: 2 x Intel Xeon E5410 2.33GHz 12MB L2 Cache 80W Quad-Core
Mem: 6 x 4GB DDR2 667 SDRAM ECC Registereed
RAID: Areca ARC-1210 SATA II Controller Card RAID w/Battery Backup module
Disk: 4 x Seagate Barracuda ES.2 500GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA
The raid is configured as a 3 disk RAID5 array with 1 hot-spare that the controller card will automatically swap in.
Hypervisor: ESX 3.5.1
OS: 9 x Ubuntu Server 8.04.2 Instances, 1 x Win2k-Pro SP5
Success will be lovely, but you will have to go out and get it! Failure will invite itself in.

Your donation makes this sig possible!

That would give a complete new meaning to a Dungeon Crawl.
