    At some point over the weekend (most likely sat afternoon GMT-5), HS (and all my other sites) will be down for a little bit. Traffic is up and we're killing the sql server (as i'm sure some of you have noticed) during peak times.

    So, I got a new server coming through.

    moving form cloverton to hapertown proc's, still dual quad cores @ 2.0ghz
    moving from 2gb ram to 8gb ram
    moving from raid 5 on 3 sataII drives to raid 10 on 4 sata 10k raptors

    :clapping: woooo hooo no more slugish hondaswap


    I rember when scored 2 10gb 10k scsi drives and controller back in the day and i did a raid0 setup everyone thought that was the shit. Can you even get scsi drives any more ore did sata knock them out. Wish i would have stayed in school for computers things have grown so much in the last 5yrs. I wouldnt even know where to start chosing componets for a server any more. Rember when hard drives used to cost almost $1 per MB then they were $1 per GB now its almost $1 per TB

    sata is at its end of life too. SA-SCSI is replacing evertyhing. It's an extra 200 bucks a month through ($50/drive) for it over sata... so its not in the budget for me yet.

    15k's are an option, but its just too much money IMO.

    assuming sata II 7200 is "free/included"
    sata 10k raptors are 75 more a month
    sata 15k raptors are 100 more a month
    sa-scsi 10ks are 125 more a month
    sa-scsi 15ks are 200 more a month.

    lot of cash for drives.

    All this tech talk makes absolutely no sense to me. As long as I can log on to whatever website I go to, I am happy. I'll leave all the tough work to someone else. Kudos to you guys that can understand all that and make it all work.

    B, I thought you sold Conflicting Views?

    and yeah, i know cpanel sucks, but i'm not great with linux. saves me a lot of headaches.

    everything seems to be up and running now though pretty good.
