New Server In The Pipeline

We’re now in possession of a new server that’s in the process of being set up by yours truly. Curious about the specs?

2x Intel Xeon L5520 (which we can easily upgrade later to a couple of 6-core CPUs, hooray expandability!)
And… a whopping 72GB of DDR3. I’d say we’re good for a while on that front.

For comparison, our current servers are a few low-end VMs with 512MB RAM, and the main server is a dual socket 939 Opteron with 6GB DDR. If you understand what I’m talking about you’ll instantly recognize what an exponential upgrade this is.
