New Main Server

I keep neglecting to throw up a quick post about my new main server, which I received for my birthday last year.  It’s a Sun Microsystems SunFire V890…yes, I really do use this space heater every day.



The specs are below:

8x 2.1GHz Dual-Core UltraSPARC IV+ CPUs
128GB (64x2GB) RAM – no, that’s not a typo…128 GIGABYTES of main system memory
Sun FC-AL Controller for disk multipathing
8-Port LSi Logic SAS/SATA Controller
Sun XVR-600 3D Graphics Accelerator
Sun Quad Fast Ethernet Card
2x Sun PCi-IIpro Cards
Sun USB 2.0/FireWire 400 Card
Sun Crypto Accelerator 1000 Card
Adaptec SCSI Controller

2x 146GB, 15K HDDs in a UFS Mirror for OS & Applications
10x 500GB, 7.2K HDDs in RAID-Z3 for Storage
8x 500GB, 5.4K HDDs in RAID-Z for Backup
Sun DDS4 Tape Drive for Weekly Backups

I’ll post more about this thing when I get more time…along with a few videos I’m editing… 🙂
