Platform For The Six-Core AMD Opteron

Jun 22, 2009

There always seems to be some Quality issues with the Nvidia chipsets, so I was looking at getting some feedback on boards if any of you have been using anything else yet.

Normally I only use Tyan for server builds but the only alternative to Nvidia chipset is the Thunder h2000M (S3992-E).

I'm looking for stability #1, performance #2

I'm looking for something non Nvidia but simular to the "TYAN S4989WG2NR Quad 1207(F)" as far as features.

1X Opteron Dual Core 2.4GHZ OR 2X Opteron Dual Core 2.0GHZ

Nov 7, 2007

I am going to buy a new server and I am unsure of which route to take.

Basically the cost is identical for a Dell server with:

1 AMD Operton Dual Core 2.4Ghz


2 AMD Operton Dual Core 2.0Ghz

What is the felling? Does the 4 cores out weight the extra 400 mhz per processor, but only having 2 cores?

The server will be running:

Windows 2003 Standard x32
Plesk 8.2
IIS 6.0 [ Application Pools Setup ]
Microsft SQL Express 2005 [ONLY CAN USE 1 CPU/CORE]

Can my applications even handle/utilize four cores?

Quad Core Xeon Or 2X AMD Opteron Dual Core

Nov 27, 2007

(1x) Quad Core Intel Xeon X3220 2.40GHz 2x4M Cache


(2x) Dual Core AMD Opteron 2216 2.4GHz 2X1MB Cache 1Ghz HyperTransport

This is for a web/application server running, Windows 2003 Server Professional, IIS, MySQL, MSSQL 2005 Express, Plesk 8.5. The price is about the same.

Trying to determine how much better, if any, the Dual Opteron 265 would be over the Quad 6600... this is for a dedicated server.

Also... would it be worth $20 per month more for a Dual Opteron 2212?

Virtualization Platform

Mar 29, 2009

In another thread somebody had mentioned something about Citrix Xenserver utilizing shared iSCSI storage with multiple hardware nodes. I think this is a very intriguing concept, but is there anything open source or less expensive that you have used to accomplish similar resource virtualization?

Whether citrix or not, describe your setup!

Amazon EC2 Or Other Cloud Platform?

Dec 28, 2008

I have a new comparison shopping site. The challenge I currently have is that I have a dedicated server on Hostgator ($374 per month). But, I am in the middle of changing programmers after initial problems. While we are working through issues, I would like to bring down costs (there is very little traffic on the site right now).

Does a service such as Amazon EC2 make sense? It is not that I am unhappy with Hostgator. I just want to reduce cost while we fix the site (could take several months), and, position the site for easy growth (which is why I am considering Cloud Computing).

Comparison shopping is a large database intensive effort, so I do not think that a simple "shared" service makes sense.

Reseller Club Platform

Mar 14, 2009

Every one talks about WHMCS however I am not found any real online companies using it's full potential so I dont know how it looks or how good it would fit my plans.

I could not find a overview of companies using their software.

So, I am asking about Resellers Club,

I like the way it is set up for domains, hosting etc and looks like a big company

example... "1and1, godaddy, etc".

Are there any applications similar to Resellers Club for client management, domain management, shopping cart etc that does not look like everyone else on the web?

Microsoft Web Platform Installer

Feb 6, 2009

I have seen here in the Windows Hosting Forum that some people ask questions about Windows hosting where they would really benefit from a basic understanding of the Microsoft web technology.

Recently on Jan 21, Microsoft made it a trivial process to install all the components needed to "kick the tires" with the "Web Platform Installer"

And I've come across a lot of hosters claiming to provide Windows hosting that could really use some quality time with this stuff!

From the Microsoft web site:

The Web Platform Installer (Web PI) is a simple tool that installs Microsoft's entire Web Platform, including IIS, Visual Web Developer 2008 Express Edition, SQL Server 2008 Express Edition and the .NET Framework. Using the Web Platform InstallerĂ¢Â€Â™s user interface, you can choose to install either specific products or the entire Microsoft Web Platform onto your computer. The Web PI also helps keep your products up to date by always offering the latest additions to the Web Platform.

New Updates! Now supporting Windows XP and Windows Server 2003, Web PI makes it easy to install and stay up-to-date with the Microsoft Web Platform. This updated release lets you install ASP.NET MVC, Visual Studio Tools for Silverlight, and much more!

Multi Platform Scripts

Apr 15, 2008

I would like to ask your opinions on the best way to control server services and scripts on different platforms.

Basically i need to execute some command line scripts on a windows server. The way im doing this is vbscript which is called in asp.

What i really want to do is have a central server on linux which i can host a php script and mysql database on which in turn connects to the windows server to execute the vbscript.

Ive always worked with php and mysql so i dont really want to run everything in asp. If i did run everything in asp im not to sure if it would be clever to run asp scripts with mysql and would then have to go to the microsoft sql 2005 route.

So my question is what would be my best way to run php and mysql on a linux server that can in turn connect to a windows server to run a vbscript or execute through command line and log data to mysql, baring in mind authentication and security.

I do have php and mysql set up on the windows server but after alot of trouble getting it running right im not to keen on running the php scripts local, i really need a central linux server for the scripts.

Building A Scalable Webhosting Service Platform

Jun 24, 2009

We have a small web+email hosting and data center business in Africa. We've been providing hosting services to our clients using Plesk on Dell-based servers (connected over a Fiberchannel interface to a SAN). Our data center is connected via an STM-4 and multiple STM-1s to 2 different upstream providers.

The problem we're having is (as a result of our own lack of knowledge) that our solution is just not scalable in the current configuration. We essentially buy a Dell server, install Plesk and keep provisioning customer domains (web and mail hosting) on it till capacity runs out (we max out on average at 400 domains per server) and then buy the next Dell machine and repeat.

What we're looking for is advice on building a more scalable and automated solution. Essentially we're looking for a software and hardware solution (blade solution with web and mail software that is able to harness the power / redundancy of multiple blade servers) that enables us to provision thousands of customers at one go (and simply add more blades servers as needed).
