Tonight we are building the new Celtic Radio web server. Our new web server will be running on a HP 200 G1 server with a 2.40Ghz Quad Core Pentium processor.
Installing our select version of the Linux operating system took less than 10 minutes and most of that process was setup parameters.
We should see a slight speed improvement as we move from a dual processor to quad processor.
Next step will be to copy over all of our backup files and then see how it runs in a test environment. This will also be a good test to see if our backup plan actually works.
Considering the speed improvement, we might try experimenting with running our database software on the web machine or possibly setting up somesort of dual database system to offload some of the resources. Will see.
Amazing to witness the progression of servers we have used over the years. I think our first server maybe ran at 133 mhz. My times have changed!
The graveyard of old Celtic Radio servers continues to grow!
