The new filers for our Johnny Project* had just arrived and since our business has “quite a lot” to do with photos, I decided to do a little “unboxing fotostory” again.
The specs of these machines (per machine):
- transtec CALEO 3U
- Quad-Core XEON E5405, 2.0 GHz
- 14 Seagate 1TB SATA-2 Disks, 7200 rpm
- 2 Seagate 146 GB SAS Disk, 15’000 rpm
The three filers cleanly piled up, but still in the box
So, lets open the box!
Of course we all were excited about the inner values of those filers too, so we got them “prepared for surgery” (luckily we didn’t have to use a scalpel for that )
As we can see, there would be “a little bit” of space for RAM extension…
View from the back…
…and from the front. -Looks cute indeed!
But whats even better than one server full of disks…?
Right, THREE SERVERS FULL OF DISKS!
Total Capacity: ~38 TB
The whole environment for our Johnny-Project in the lab.
