> Hi guys,
> Finally MSI and the forum team reached an agreement.
> As you know the current forum server is incredibly fast.
> MSI has done some testing the last few days with new fileservers for LiveUpdate and downloading various stuff but they where unable to match the speed of the forum server.
> Because they noticed we do such a good job of running the forum, they wanted us to takeover all other servers and put everything on the forum server.
> This includes their marketting/support websites, fileservers and all other forums.
> We think our server can handle all this traffic with ease.
> Our current traffic is between 100~200GB each month, but we think our connection can handle all the traffic and should give better results.
> MSI thinks that the current server can do all their other traffic as well.
> It might slowdown the forum a little bit, but we expect no major problems.
> This move will happen beginning of the second quarter this year.
> Our forum server is build with this stuff:
> 2x Xeon 2.8GHz
> 2x 15000 RPM SCSI drive's in RAID1 (but we are going to add 2 more for RAID5 to gain about 275MB/s speed)
> 2x 1GB memory reg ecc
> Debian AMD64 with all the latest updates.
> Tests so far has shown that we can handle MSI's traffic of 27TB/month isn't a problem.
> So please test the speed of everything the first day of next quarter, we are moving bits and pieces that day and hope to recieve reports on the speed.
> There might be a nice supprice for the best reporter on how the move is going, but I'm not allowed what that will be.
> I will post shortly the email address that can be used to send in reports.
> [Edit]The move has been done.
> You can use this link to test the new servers: http://www.msi.eu
> Also, you can sent in speed reports here: firstname.lastname@example.org
