As promised (but a little later than intended), I’m currently working on putting the AMD Opteron “Shanghai” pre-orders into the Flickerdown Store.  All of the models are available for pre-order and AMD has committed to ensuring that these parts will ship in a timely manner to the channel.  However, as with ANY pre-order, delivery times can and (most likely) WILL change.

To that end, I’ll be updating the Flickerdown Store (and the front page) as delivery times and availability change.

Happy November!!!!

cheers,

Dave Graham

Servers for Sale!

by Dave Graham on October 20, 2008


From time to time, I like to clean out some of the “older” hardware lying around the lab.  So, for your perusal today, I’ve got 3 servers that are going to be up for grabs (complete with the requisite Paypal/GoogleCheckout links).  Click on through to see the descriptions and pricing.

Note:  Each of these servers has run VMWare ESX 3.5 (up to Update 2) without issue.  The two AMD boxes, in particular, have at least 6 months of uptime between them except for minor hardware upgrades done along the way.  VERY impressive boxes to use with ESX.

Future Storage Systems: A pause in workflow

October 17, 2008

Since I started this article series, I’ve had the awesome opportunity to have my ideas (well, some of the early articles at least) reviewed by person(s) who deal with the actual infrastructure of storage systems day in, day out.  The benefit of such peer review is that you get to learn at the symbolic “feet” [...]

Future Storage Systems: Part 3b – I/O Expansion Node

October 10, 2008

In Part 3a, we discussed the possibility of a purpose-driven Compute Node based on the Torrenza initiative for the Future Storage system.  This expansion node made use of Hypertransport as a “glue” between the base storage compute node and the expansion node (of computation or I/O flavours) that could be added.  The advantages of that [...]
