Updated Photo's

I had made some changes and upgraded my rack some in the last few weeks. I thought I would share a recent photo of my baby with everyone.

Looks like a few less empty slots in the rack.
In fact I can't see the floor but it looks like one spare slot left.
I take that back it looks like 4 open slots.
Was Santa nice to you this year?

The bottom, where the photo is cut off has the UPS stuff in it. Going to replace those with rack mount ones in the very near future.

I added a few more powerful servers and in turn can handle 10x the load on the new servers compared to the older ones. I also added CyperPower PDU's as so I can remote cold start a server if one would happen to lock up. This may happen from time to time and I'm able to restart and power down or completely remote operate any aspect of the entire rack from my PDA.

The blue ones were Cobalt's but I totally rebuilt them and upgraded them severely from the original stock Cobalt. They are no longer running the Sun or Cobalt software. I also upgraded the drive capacity, CPU, and memory too. All the machines are running Linux.

The OS is Anaconda.

hehe, what movie is that from? American Pie? tongue

Nice rack JAISP - for the cobalts, even if you upgraded the cpu/mem/etc, aren't you still limited by the slow MB? That's some pretty old hardware (the cobalts), eh? I guess they could server static pages as well as most anything.

The Cobalt's are only for sites that require nothing more then Displaying pages. I have sites hosted that are more like a business card requiring one to 5 pages by the people own them. They have no interactive material and their email is basically forwarded to their home email account. This is a great task for the those machines.

I don't feel the need to clutter up a more powerful machine with a very low end and low budget web site. The Cobalt's can handle up to 200 web sites but I only go as high as 50 on each machine before I call them maxed out. I do have a two sites on one of the Cobalt's running UBB Classic on there.

Now sites like my sites or any other site with any type of activity go on the black machines. Those are designed for max usage and interaction with much faster processors, more memory, and large CPU's.

The Cobalt's are all duel NIC's, 550 Mhz AMD processors, 512 Meg of Ram. duel 120 gig HDD's (Max a Cobalt can handle).
