Big Iron

Today, our new midrange server got delivered: an IBM p570 with an initial configuration of 6 Power 5+ CPUs (2.2 GHz) and 128 GB of RAM. (Play back Tim Taylor grunting.)

The storage unit will be delivered not until next week. Initial storage capacity will be 4 TB of production space (SCSI FC harddisks) and 6 TB of backup space (SATA). And there’s still a lot of room to grow.
