Servers Revisited

Servers. Gotta love 'em. I know I do.

It's been a while since I posted up some hardware to keep my geeky friends drooling, so I thought I'd show a few pictures of our hardware setup now. The first picture is our server room, which I haven't featured before. Top to bottom: Tape backup, the server that had our inventory / accounting system on it before (now just file storage for the most part), our old dev box, our internet gateway box (XML interface between our site and our system as well as a firewall / NAT system), a Google Mini for ProperPet, the KVM switch for these servers, 3 dev servers for the sites (1 dev, 2 staging to mirror our setup downtown), the UPS for those 3 (which barely shows up with some green lights), the keyboard and monitor for it, our ACD server, and the big Dell box that powers our system now with its battery right below. That's a decent amount of hardware for one cabinet, but it's not nearly as dense as our environment downtown.

This is our downtown (datacenter) setup. Top to bottom again, our Primary load balancer, a network switch, our secondary load balancer, external HDD for backup and a few spare network / power cables, our Memcached server (32GB of RAM is pretty), a Google Mini, the blank spot our NAS is supposed to be in (had a bad drive, so it's over here right now), another Google Mini, 2 Database servers, 3 web servers and a mail server.

Overall, we have some hardware, but there's more on the way. I'm going to have to figure out where to put it, because we're running out of room - especially downtown where our Web App Firewall will be located. What a fun problem to have.
