In case you missed the first announcement, here is a brief description of our new server:
Anyway, today the server will be switched on at our new DC (which is multi-homed) in Michigan, it has been configured to run the Neowin website completely but will initially only account for 1/3 of the total site load. DaveLegg will eventually transfer all of our services to this new server by the weekend so that our guy in Michigan can retrieve our 4 older servers from the old DC in Chicago and take them to the new DC to be put back into the mix.
Quad Core Xeon L5410 Processor2x6M Cache, 2.33GHz, 1333MHz FSB for PowerEdge R300
16GB Memory, 4x4GB, 667MHz Dual Ranked DIMMs
Riser with 2 Slots: 2 PCI Exprx8 slots
2x 146GB 15K RPM Serial-Attach SCSI 3Gbps 3.5-in HotPlug HardDrive
On-Board Dual Gigabit Network Adapter
Chassis with Hot Plug Hard Drive and Non-Redundant Power Supply for PowerEdge R300
Hot Plug Add-in SAS6iR RAID Controller (SATA/SAS Controller) which supports 2 Hard Drives - RAID 1
You should have no connection issues at all as the DNS points to both the new AND old servers, and by the time our old servers are switched off at the weekend DNS will be completely transferred to our new server configuration.
There may be hiccups along the way, but at least you'll know in advance that we are busy transferring Neowin to a better server configuration and multi-homed DC.
