I do apologize that we haven't moved yet, I've been focused on dev and prepping lots of "almost finished" things before we hit 2,000,000 posts instead of the server move (which won't be a simple affair). Rest assured that our present server expires in about 10 days so circumstance will force my priorities!

Our host liquidweb were kind enough to take our server down and take some pictures. Our new home will be a hyperthreading dual quad core Xeon 5520, 15k SAS RAID drives, and 12GB of RAM. The current server we're on is running really hot during peak periods, it's really struggling, so the new server should make a huge difference.

I just hope that mounted PSU isn't part of original case ;
that's one of worst pc cases I had experience with .
pretty high failure rate , at least with ones delivered to my part of world .....

besides that - I hope they mounted intake vent for HDDs , on front panel .

just my 2c ....

Not just your neck of the world, I had to double my PSU capacity when adding many more spinning aluminium disks in the box
(It could handle the RUN current, but the START current killed it)

Cheers!

Thankfully there is no need to hope about the server having what is required. But it's good that you ask, so you can know some more about our host, Liquidweb.

Liquidweb is one of the most well respected hosts in the business, as you'll quickly find if you delve into any of the major hosting forums. Their SLA includes 100% uptime, 24x7 server monitoring, 30 minute response, and 30 minute hardware replacement. Their wholy owned datacenters, connectivity and support are all top notch, as I have experienced first hand the last 3 years. There is a video on their front page you might like to view to get a feel for kind of quality environment that the box lives in. They aren't the cheapest host, but they are one of the best and we've recieved faultless service from them to date so I sleep well at night knowing we're in their capable hands.

Hi,

No professional server case, 19"? No hot swap HDDs?
How hot will disks run at full load?

Good luck anyway!

Sorry, I'd like to see what's hidden in the sack, now I know. c2cthomas showed some nice 'new hardware' in his post earlier so I had great expectations.
