So dropped a *FANCY* new micro-mirror off at the shipping company today. This will be our first
Optiplex 9020 micro (how appropriate?) based micro-mirror. Couple of nice advantages over our trusty T620s: actually good nics, beefier cpu, more ram.
Downside: costs more (I mean, duh?)
The mirror is sponsored by http://les.net and is going to be our first international mirror! Go
Internal pictures because those are way more interesting!
So lets talk storage for 10 seconds. As we've noted before the beauty of these systems is that the storage needs to be only a bit faster than the network, and turns out an ssd on the sata bus can move about 560MB/s and 530MB/s read/write respectively. Turns out, we only need to be faster than 125MB/s on both of those ;-)
So we'll serve data off the 2TB drive, and there's a 1TB drive we boot from and COULD put more data on (also sata)
And if I get back around to it, pushing syncdiff(erent) is a pretty smart choice here and I think it's something I might poke around and see what I can do with it...
