A little downtime

Some may have noticed the site being down for about 10-15 minutes earlier today. This was due to a hardware and networking upgrade.

For fun's sake, the new contains:

2x Opteron 6128's
Tyan S8320 Motherboard
32GB DDR3 RAM
3x IBM M1015s on 9210-8i firmware
12x Samsung HD204UI 2TB HDD in a RAID60 (ZFS RAIDZ2) array
Norco 4224 case

Running ESXi 5.0 with a Solaris VM giving filesystems back to ESXi for further VM's (Internal NFS speeds of around 500MB/sec)

I've been slowly migrating my services to this machine, today was time for it to accept my router/dhcp/dns and production web VMs :)

Cheers,

Sam.
