New monitors for workstation

Finally got my new sexy Dell flat panels for my home workstation, rocks 😉

Imagepile migration

So I’ve finally started migrating imagepile to the new datacenter here @ Login. It should be interesting to see what kind of bandwidth we can push now that we basically have unlimited resources…. we’ve got about 1.5Gbps of headroom in the datacenter currently and even that is on multi-pair multi-mode OC class circuits that we can upgrade in 24hrs. I’m excited to see what kind of traffic I can really push on a multihomed connection (imagepile used to only be on Verio).

And we’ve served over 250 million images now 😉

Servers, servers, and more servers

Well I finally got in the shipment of new SuperMicro SC-512’s that are going to be replacing the slowly dieing current imagepile servers that are… well lets just say well past their prime. The one thing that was kind of annoying was I purchased dynatron D32 heatsinks and they came with all the necessary hardware except the backing plate… so I can’t actually run the servers yet *sigh* another waiting game for the replacement parts yet again.

I’ll have pictures up of the new servers and new cabinets at the datacenter on thursday 🙂
