One of the network cabinets at my work i did. Contents (Top to Bottom) 48 port Cat 6 patch panel, Netgear GS748T, APC SMTL750RM2UC, Netgear GS510TPP, APC SCL500RM1UC.
Yellow wire bugs me too, just not had time to put it in the patch panel..yet!
That might be true if we were not locked in on the software we use. As it stands, over 50% is licensing fees to Microsoft. They know businesses have to and will pay for it. And no, not "being a dick" at all. I agree there are ways for others but not in my specific situation.
Thanks for the tip on OBS. I agree stability is a key factor and important in this setup.
As far as backups, we do have 3 going every day: network, off-site physical media, and cloud so hopefully that is enough. I would love a redundant but you are right, time will tell.
The issue I'm...
I don't remember all the specs since I am not in front of it. Its a xeon 4 core v3 something on a supermicro board, 16gb ram, and 2 raid arrays in raid 1 with WD 7200 black drives. Those drives are so slow and definitely should not be in that type of configuration.
The software is by an outside...
No VMs. Just SQL on server 2019.
Yes, there are backups but sadly, only one server. It's a small city so the demand on the server is not that high and can't afford a fail over server. The one it is replacing should have been replaced like 4 years ago
Arrived yesterday, new Dell T640 Server for work. Had a lot of fun getting it unboxed and starting initial setup.
2x Intel Xeon Silver 4215R (3.2G, 8C/16T)
12x 8GB RDIMM
4x 960GB SSD SAS MU in RAID 10
(8 Drive Chassis For Future Drives)
Boss Card with 2x 256GB NVME in Raid 1
That is an excellent suggestion. I did not even look up the channel numbers. Thanks
It will have a minimum of 48, per slavie suggestion, but i can go above 64gb as in the original quote.
Update: So after looking at the current server, the hard drives are holding the system back. There is huge...
With the above config, server 19, 15 user cals, 5 remote desktop cals, sql + 15 cals, about $12,500 total price.
City has no other servers at the moment , but maybe in future if need comes up. I have one VM running on an old server 2008 instance cause of some very old software for the police...
Currently, it's a Server 12 r2 with 2 7200k drives in raid 1 with a 2nd raid for the OS.
Not opposed to adding more ram. I have to look again but I think we have 32gb now and it usually is at 60% usage when the database is running.
The drives are a huge performance drag being that slow when a...
