I am making some business plans and having an independent datacenter is one of them. Certainly it isn't easy as leasing a space, and buy some stuff. Some of the things I have to watch out for are network activity, getting bandwidth support, power supply, get an engineering company to design the facility and a lot of stuff.
Are there any companies who handles all that? What would be the specific steps to accomplish my agenda?
I am trying to put together a 1U server, and this is the first time I've had to deal with the space constraints of a rackmount server.
I am toying with a RAID 10 setup, which requires 4 drives, so I am looking at 2.5" enterprise drives so that I can fit 4 into a 1U rack. The problem is I was on newegg and don't see any cases with 2.5" bays. Are there kits that convert 3.5" bays to 2x2.5" or something of this nature? Furthermore, I see here:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822136260
that the 2.5" drive is inside a 3.5" brick. Can this be taken out of the mount? I don't see the point in paying extra for a 2.5" drive that only fits in a 3.5" slot.
I have read that in a 4-drive array, RAID 10 outperforms RAID 5. This seems counterintuitive to me because in RAID 5 there is essentially striping across 3 drives, and then parity on the 4th, whereas in 10, you would only have striping across 2 drives. Is this just because of the calculations involved in generating the parity?
I have been trying to get it to work for 3 days now, and just not having any luck at all. When I plug it in, the PSU fan comes on, and the green light on the motherboard flashes on and off. I have made sure all the connections on it are correct (to the best of my knowledge anyways, the manuals are ****) and it will not boot up.
This leads me to believe that either something is dead, or that the RAM is incorrect. All the parts I have were suggested by cwl@apaqdigital, so I assume they all will work together, but I need some help fast. Todays the last day I can RMA them to newegg.
I have build PHP as CGI but now the function exec says with every command like uptime this error: [Thu Apr 16 10:28:37 2009] [error] [client xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx] sh: uptime: command not found
This also happens when I do the command convert (yes Imagemagick is installed). Strange enough when I login with the permissions of the exame user I can do the commands through SSH without any problem.
I use DirectAdmin with custombuild. How can I resolve this? Am I required to build PHP to CLI to use the exec command?
Is there some sort of checklist of all programs and settings that should take place when building a new web server? I am outsourcing a server build to a new consultant and I know that basics of what needs to be installed but I am sure I am missing a few things, most importantly security issues.
Does anyone have an input on this or links that I might find useful?
Here is what I know needs to be built: Free BSD Apache 2 PHP 5 Mysql 5 cPanel
I am wondering does anyone know of either a program/software, and/or script that will auto build a dedicated server? For example, someone purchase my product as soon as it is verified than it starts the building process and builds the server to what they asked for, partitioning, etc.?
I received a chassis from SuperMicro today. It came with a translucent thin piece of plastic (about as thin as a piece of paper). The plastic has holes cut out that are roughly the same as the holes in the mother board. What is this thing? Is it just a guide so you know where to put the mounting screws?
we are currently in need of someone who has had experience with Data Center build-outs. We are located in Northern California so someone in that area would be great. Does anyone here have any recommendations for someone they know or have worked with?
If you've ever wanted to know how to build your own DC, the nice chaps at Pipe Networks in Australia have been blogging about their experiences building their own.
The facilities staff at Pipe Networks is live-blogging its bid to build a new data center in just 60 days. The effort began back on April 16 with an empty room in Brisbane, Australia, and is entering the stretch run with a completion deadline of 9 am EST Friday (June 15). Pipe Networks has put the entire effort online, providing a window into the data center fit-out process with daily updates via Pipe Networks' DC3 blog, a live webcam of the data center in progress and a checklist of key items and their stage of completion.
i have my own server, a good internet provider, and i want to make my own server to host my website.Can anyone let me know what do i have to install on my computers to work as well.From what i know, i have to install:
apache, php, mysql, cpanel(is this optional? from where can i buy one), DNS (what is exactly dns)...
Do you have plans for building Apache 2.4 with OpenSSL 1.0.2? One good reason for upgrading Apache to OpenSSL to 1.0.2 would be the ability to disable TLS session tickets, eq. when using PFS:
Code : SSLOpenSSLConfCmd Options -SessionTicket
Here are a few references:
I tried to experiment with replacing OpenSSL dlls and exe in apachein directory but that did not work, because it looks like SSLOpenSSLConfCmd configuration directive is only available when Apache is compiled against OpenSSL 1.0.2.
I find it easy to update softwares (PHP, MySQL, phpmyadmin, Apache, etc.) in Directadmin because they have integrated custombuild. I plan to try Plesk for the first time, what is the counterpart of custombuild in Plesk?
In my country (VietNam),ISP DNS server (188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206) is updated cache very slowly, but OpenDNS is faster. I would like to build a private DNS as OpenDNS. I want to using it which replace ISP DNS Server . What do I need more except BIND?
I run an online music archive site . Djs can upload their mixes to share and we also archive radio shows for people to listen back to.
Basically I was wondering if it would be possible to build a secondary server that could do this for me.
The secondary server could have multiple cast rippers running and could record internet radio shows, then once finished recording transfer it could send them over to my primary server to add to the website for people to download.
