Server upgrade pictures, as promised

Saturday, November 5th, 2005

Here are some pictures of the server upgrade.

Old server: P2 300MHz, with 256MB RAM:

New server: Xion 3GHz+HT+EMT64, with 1GB RAM. Nice:

Dell PowerEdge 1800. Nice LEDs 🙂

The whole server room during the upgrade.

Notice the 3com router/switch! You’ll be able to recognise it by its antenas

Notice the wireless routed/switch at the center left, which connects the servers, while keeping them disconnected from the Internet and independent of any ISP based solution, cables, etc. You cannot see me, sitting in a more comfortable room (but not by far), using my laptop, through the wireless link, as the manager for this whole migration process. Worked like charm.
