Artashes is on a distinguished road

  Old

Here are the specs of our new monster system:

Intel Xeon E5620
Cores: 4
Threads: 8
Ghz: 2.4
Cache: 12MB Smart Cache
Bus/Core Ratio: 18
System Bus: 5.86GT/s
Turbo Boost: Yes
HyperThread: Yes
Memory: 12GB DDR3
RAID: Yes
Backups: Hourly

In comparison to the older machine, it handles twice as many threads per core, faster speed, faster CPU Cache, 3 times more memory on the server, but still retains RAID and Hourly Backups for the system.

In all honesty, I personally was happy enough with the older system that could have easily served our needs another few years. But knowing Conor and his proactive management style, they are keeping their hands on the pulse of this community's technical performance and always try to improve things around. In this instance, as always, I did not even have to ask for anything - it was all their initiative. So all the best wishes go to them for caring so much!
