Robot Co-op Hardware
|4||Dual 3GHz Xeon||6GB||70GB RAID 1||Apache, FastCGI, MogileFS storage node, memcached, image serving|
|1||Dual 3GHz Xeon||2GB||70GB RAID 1||Staging, mail, backend jobs|
|1||Dual Opteron 246||12GB||5x 73GB in RAID 5||MySQL|
The four web servers are more fluke than planning, we don’t need the capacity they have just yet. We started with two webservers, a database server and a staging/mail/backend server, all dual 3GHz Xeons. We then added a third webserver and after that the Opteron MySQL box. The old database server was recently repurposed as a webserver.
Site traffic is currently spread across all four web boxes as each box runs all of our sites by a hardware load balancer of unknown manufacture. Eventually we’ll switch to running the 43 Things on a pair of machines and all other sites on the remaining machines.comments
