My Server Rack (Image warning)

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
I am generally just a reader around here (especially since I am on the younger side) but today I decided that I would show you guys what I do with my spare time (and spare money). The rack is mostly finished but I am missing a few things like rails and drive bay blanks. The servers are one of my sources of income as I host things on them. There are a few towers and also some actual rackmounted servers. Most importantly I do not choke these on a wimpy internet connection. I have a 38 down and 25 up connection and my new 300 down 65 up Fios connection should be set up in a few days.
Services:
--- Shorewall
---MYSQL
---DHCP
---DNS
---Squid
---PBX
---Splunk
---VPSs
---Minecraft
---Storage
---Smart House --- Mirage (Custom coded in java by me biggrin.gif)
---Alot of other things aswell

Here are the rackmount servers in order from top to bottom starting below the screen.

Dell Poweredge 1750 -- Dual Xeon 2.4 GHz -- 6 GB RAM Ubuntu Server 12.04
HP Proliant DL360 G4p -- Dual Xeon 3.4 GHz-- 6 GB RAM Ubuntu Server 12.04
HP Proliant DL360 G4 -- Dual Xeon 3.6GHz -- 6 GB RAM Ubuntu Server 12.04
HP Proliant DL360 G4 -- Dual Xeon 3.4 GHz -- 4 GB RAM Ubuntu Server 12.04
HP Proliant DL360 G4p -- Dual Xeon 3.6 GHz-- 6 GB RAM Windows Server 2012 RC
#This one is my baby -- The Beast
HP Proliant DL585 -- Quad AMD Dual Core Opteron 3.0 GHz -- 40 GB RAM Ubuntu Server 12.04
Compaq ProLiant ML350 G3 -- Intel Xeon 2.4 GHz -- 3 GB RAM Ubuntu Server 12.04

All of the Xeons are kind of dual core since the OS sees the threads as cores.

All of these guys have 15k Drives and most of them are in raid 10 with capacities varying from 18 Gigabytes to 146 Gigabytes.
*cough If anyone has 2.5 Drives that are gathering dust I would love to have some! The Beast is hungry

The whole house is linked up with 100 Mbp connections and all the servers are interconnected with a 1 Gbps Backbone and my sig rig is on 1 Gbp too. All of which are separate through VPN in teh switch itself (HP Procurve 8000m).

Please ask questions, comment or tell me where I can improve!

And now here come the pictures!


Custom power connector for The Beast since I didn't want to wait to order one.












Here are some pictures from when I rebuilt the rack yesterday.
Just a note these things are HEAVY for example The Beast weighs 120 pounds

I don't rent out the entire machines usually but I do rent out Virtual Private Servers and I do host individual services for other people.

Very Nice. I especially like the name. 'The Beast'

What software do you use for Virtualisation?
