We started building our new cluster this week.
"Cluster 2" ("C2") promises increased performance in several respects, as well as more capacity for customer growth.
Equipment started arriving this week and the system started coming together on Thursday.
The pics below show some of the components in the data center warehouse and others racked up in a new and improved cabinet design that has better airflow and access from all sides.
Existing customers will not be affected in any negative way while we build and test the new cluster.
Palettes of servers!
Disks and SAN units upon arrival.
New cabinets are a definite improvement, especially in terms of access.
Lots of storage!
Smaller cabinet waiting for a particular customer.
