We’ve decided we’ll be doing our build at the start of July, instead of in the late fall like we had planned. To top this off, we’re upgrading everyone that is currently on an L5420 (just do cat /proc/cpuinfo to find out) to the following gear:
- Dual Quad L5520
- 24GB – 48GB DDR3
- 8 x 1.5TB 7200RPM Hitachi drives
- Adaptec 6805 RAID card in RAID10 mode
The current plan will bring us around1,000 new 128MB plans alone, as well as at least 1500 – 2000 of our other plans.
No, prices will not be going up to support this, we don’t need to do that .Current measurements are putting us 20ms+ less to China than the rest as well as much better routes in the USA due to the Level3.
