New Rack!

At the weekend we moved all our Half Rack’s worth of Servers into a full rack, and added 4 new Dell PowerEdge R210 machines as well.

Our primary aim of doing this was to consolidate some existing servers into the new machines, as well as providing expansion space for a customer who was upgrading. Of course, having the extra space will be useful as the year progresses and we’ll be making full use of this in the future!

The SuperMicro machines at the top of the rack we’ve had for about 5 years now, and are now being retired. The larger of the two is already turned off, and the lower is due to be turned off on Friday!

The Zero U PDU turned out not to be as useful as hoped, so we’ll be reverting to the 1U units we’ve used previously at some point, not in any rush to do so though.

We’ve also just purchased a new Private LAN switch, a PowerConnect 5224, which will give us a good few extra ports for future expansion purposes, as well as being fully manageable unlike the older PowerConnect 2716 we were using previously.
