What would you do?

Recommended Posts

Hi All

Just a general question really. I have a couple of machines spare, each with 500GB worth of storage.

If you had these two machines and wanted to use them as servers, what type of server would you use them for???

Oh, i have a third machine which is in use, that has approx 2TB of storage, this machine is mainly used for storage.

I look forward to reading your suggestions/comments.

Well initially, we had bits of data spread out over different servers, and with the new server that we have, we've bought together the data held on numerous servers onto one.

So we have more than enough storage, with two machines left over.

Was simply wondering what people would do with the spare servers.

With two spare machines, I would go to Stanford's web site and download the 5.04beta console client. Then, I would open the command prompt and type fah504-console -config. I would then insert my username (yours should be RLBUHT) and give 10047 for my team number.

Do this and around 17 guys willl be quite grateful to you :)

I would keep them empty, so that if your 2TB server goes tits-up, you have somewhere to restore the backups to. You have backups right ;)
