HP donated some nice hardware to

Some pretty sweet hardware to the linux kernel developers...

HP has most graciously donated a pair of DL585 quad Opteron servers with 24 GB of RAM and 10 TB of disk using a pair of MSA-30 arrays for each server. The first ones of these servers was officially put in service today; the next one will be put in service next week. Each server is in a different ISC colo, connected to the Internet via gigabit fiber links. Consequently, we should now see incredibly much better performance from Huge thanks to HP for the new hardware, and huge thanks to ISC for letting us quadruple our rack space requirements from 5U to 2x10U. WeĆ¢€™ll be saturating those links in no time :)
