I feel an itch for building a new server now. Ah well, it will have to wait, I'm not
even done with my personal rig yet. biggrin.gif

Small update today - networking. The 3x 4-port NICs arrived that will be driving the networking on the cluster. 18 GBit/s network throughput all together - 3x 4port NICs + 3x 2port onboard NICs.


Here is an ad for Coca Cola a picture of the finished vHost in the rack rail mounting.


And here is a look on the whole rack. You will notice the main storage and the backup NAS already in the rack, this was just for testing and rail mount positioning.

Somehow I like building servers more then normal PCs. Less mess and problems with cabling and worries if its gonna work etc I guess.

I built a few stand-alone rack servers before, but this will be a mission-critical cluser if all goes well, so lets hope it works smile.gif

The trouble with building proper servers with proper server equipment is that it's
a tad expensive for a college student (although I can't complain, my current build
certainly isn't anything close to reasonable and I've only been able to afford it
because I prioritized my spending habits very stringently and was able to work
during my off year from college).

But yeah, server equipment is mostly pretty awesome, albeit not exactly pleasing
to the eye (green PCBs and such, but the priorities in that market are of course
not geared towards having a pretty computer in the end wink.gif).

I shall be praying to the gods of VMs, the deities of storage and the demons of
networking for you. biggrin.gif

Oh yeah, servers are expensive. Part of why I am doing this, to not have to buy crazy priced brand-name servers. As to the pleasing to the eye effect, well, you know, when I close the lid on the chasis, I hope I dont have to open it up again for a long time smile.gif

I laught good at that last sentance, but your help in this regard is mostly appreciated biggrin.gif
