Thanks for your kind offers everyone.

godaddy will not be an option due to the low hdd usage they allow.

karma and jwb,
I may be in touch with you.

As far as connection goes, we could probably litterally scrape by with about 3 or 4 Mbps (during peaks) with noticeable slowdown to end users at present but this allows pretty much no future expandability during our tenure at our next host. 6 - 8Mbps would be alot more comfortable for the time being. 10Mbps during peak would allow for projected growth with off peak average probably still sitting around 2 - 3Mbps.

So,
Perhaps if someone is willing to offer a suitable box to act as server and someone else is able to offer cheap or free co-hosting, we may have something.

Our main requirements for a server are a few GB of HDD space (hardware raid 5 preferred) and lots of RAM. I've done huge amounts of work to keep our CPU usage low and it continues to be so low that it hardly registers alot of the time on the dual p3 box we are currently running on (and I've still got a few tricks up my sleeve to get it even lower) so CPU usage is much less of a concern than HDD and RAM.

Hi,

I've got a spare server.
It's not doing anything other than store some DVDs which I'd be happy to delete...

My main objection is I just can't afford to have this beast running 24/7 and the noise of the fans would drive me nuts too.

I'm open to suggestions and I wouldn't mind selling it but it's a machine worth well over 20.000 AUD...

If you need details or want more info, I'm happy to help.

Hate to see all those posts go into the digital null....

Cheers,

It's not ideal but it's worth keeping in mind. I'm rather busy at the moment could you please try and find out what CPU and RAM allowances one is given, also what is the bandwidth (ie. Mbps etc) supplied and backup options (onsite / offsite / cost / frequency etc.) on Plan 3.

Hi Dan,

The mobo is an Intel LG440GX built into a Astor II Intel case.
As it stands it has 2 PIII 800Mhz CPUs and 512MB of ECC memory.

It's a full SCSI + IDE system using a Mylex SCSI Ultra II PCI raid controller card allowing for a 160 Mbs transfer. Its controlled by a backplane board by Intel allowing for five scsi disks. (Not sure but I think the backplane reduces throughput to 80mBs)

Bios is latest spec and the disk configuration is a mirror of 2*9 GB disks containing OS and swap file plus 3*36GB Quantum disks configured as a stripe set.
It can take more, much more as I'm sure you realise:

The raid controller can be updated, memory can go up to 1GB, disk capacity can be both extended and made faster with new raid controller.

There's also a floppy drive and a SCSI Plextor CD-R drive (40max)

Currently it runs Win2K SP4 with all latest patches.

I also have a HP Surestore 1200e robot tape backup device to go with it and plenty of tapes and software...

If this machine can be of use to diyAudio, let me know what you're thinking of.

Best regards,
