This weekend we rolled out a new server, a Dell Power Edge R410, named Eos, to host the Apache.org websites and MoinMoin wiki:
- OS: FreeBSD 8.1-RC2
- CPU: 2x Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU X5550 @ 2.67GHz (2 package(s) x 4 core(s) x 2 SMT threads = 16 CPUs)
- RAM: 48gb DDR3
- Storage: 12x 15k RPM 300gb SAS, 2x 80gb SSD, configured in a ZFS raidz2 with the SSDs used for the L2ARC
This new hardware replaces an older Sun T2000, also called eos, as the primary webserver for apache.org. We hope everyone enjoys the increased performance, especially from the Wiki!
On the less visible infrastructure side, we are also upgrading Athena, one of our frontend mail servers. The new Athena is a DPE r210 with a 4 core 2.67GHz processor, replacing a Sun X2200.
