New Antville server is on its way

I ordered the new, future Server the other day. The picture above shows what it will look like on the inside. After lots and lots of thinking and discussions with people with lots of experience running big server racks, I decided to go with a bigger 2 unit server instead of a 1 unit model. The reason is that 1 unit rack servers are tightly crammed and usually have significantly reduced lifetime compared to spacier models. They also lean towards thermal problems, and they are less extensible. People also reported reliability problems with products from major vendors like Compaq, Dell, and IBM, which led me to think that I could just as well go with a minor vendor as long as the components are first rate and built to run. Which is why I went with german server discounter Thomas Krenn, which offers significantly more bang for the buck than any other vendor.

Here are the specs:

2 HE Dual Rack 4000, IDE and Dual CPU Tyan Thunder LE-T mainboard with ServerWorks ServerSet LE chipset 2 x PIII-S 1400MHz Processors 2048 MB ECC Registered SDRAM 3ware 7500-4 IDE RAID controller 4 x 60 GB IDE harddisks 2 x redundant 300 W power supply extractable rack rails CD-ROM drive

The price is 3447,41 Euro, so we already have the necessary amount of money. There is however a possibility that we will have additional upcoming expenses of a few hundred Euro. If this is so, I'll let you know. For now, there's no need for additional funds. Thanks for everybody who contributed!

Re: this

huh? there's absolutely no better use for it? if you're really going to dispose of it, you could do that in a more environmentally friendly way. i can always use spare parts for my modding experiments :-)

still serves us as web and cvs server, i guess.

re: adele

sounds reasonable. i wasn't quite aware that antville is just one service of a few running on there (although i should have been), so i was wondering.
