Say Hello My Dedicated Friend

I just got my dedicated server today, came in a huge box. Got it and drove down to Corvallis, and dropped it off at where it will be located. This bad boy is going to run my dedicated web 2.0 server, I can’t wait till it gets bogged down so I can upgrade to two servers, its going to be a strong foundation to build a blazing web 2.0 application on. If you have a strong foundation, you can go way way up.

I spent over $1,800 on this thing, just paid for it. You can rent them, but I’m passionate about hating to pay rent, why would I pay someone rent on someone else’s server so I pay off their server for them when I can afford to just buy it outright. Below are the specs on this guy, there are 4 hard drives in it, if one fails you can swap it in and out, called hot swap, even while its running. So if one crashes, the others are still going. The thing is pretty heavy and pretty long, I believe its noisy. Hosting is going to run about $125/month, I realize thats expensive, but I’m getting more than hosting, a lot of additional hands on support on call and stuff like that. Anyways should be good, I’ll be leaving on a plane to Ohio in 3 hours to visit family for the weekend, visit family when your able to.

  • Woah! Looking good buddy. I wonder what awesome web 2.0 site that will be used for ;). I definitely agree with you ONCE AGAIN….if you have a strong foundation, the only way is UP! Nice purchase!

  • Buying equipment out right is the way to go as long as you buy quality hardware (and supermicro is definitely good).

    $125 is cheap as hell for a single U I assume as long as it’s a decent datacenter with decent BW. Good luck.

  • Pretty nice. I might have a chance to win a free BlackBird PC =]

    Now that’s a crazy ass PC, I hope I win ^_^

  • hahah I don’t know what a blackbird PC is I’ll have to look it up

    thanks robert, thats good to know I got something good!

  • Bob

    That pretty high end. 3.4ghz 4x 1024 ram.

  • Haha yeah, I probably went a little overboard on it. It is faster than all of my laptops by far.

  • 1U Server equipment for $1800? Hah, it’s a good buy. I brought myself one’s for $2000 lately.

    By the way, I can get much cheaper rate for co-location here in Malaysia.
