For a while now we have been running the majority of our data center on enterprise HP hardware which mainly consists of DL360 and DL380 G7’s. Today we have received 3x brand new IBM servers for further development of our high availability cloud and we can’t wait to put them to the test. We plan to setup the three servers as a high availability cluster and test some new network hardware and software before rolling out to our production server environment.

Specifications are as follows:

3x IBM xSeries 3650 M4
– 2x Intel Xeon E5-2640 v2 (12 Cores)
– 4x 16 GB PC3-12800 ECC Ram (64Gb) – Support up to 768 GB over 24 slots

At heart, I am a geek. I started building websites at the age of 11 and have grown from a freelancer to running three successful web agencies located in Tamworth, Cardiff and Surrey, primarily through word-of-mouth. I love web design, and I like to think that it shows in our work. My specialities lie in bespoke web development, security testing and server management but I have a passionate team around me to complete the whole package and make our businesses the number one choice.
