As FusionCash grows, it takes up more and up server resources. We muscled out basically every other site on the current web host's server and it's rapidly approaching time to move. So, here's the future server for FC

this box is insane -- not only are there two completely separate, hot-failover power supplies, but it can also hot failover on MEMORY. that's right, redundant memory. it has all the standard stuff like RAID, health monitoring, etc. but what really kills it is the remote access card as long as the TCP/IP connection is alive, I can connect to the server and control it from home. it has some insane features like automatic screen captures, downtime notification, console redirection, POST monitoring and more -- [url==http//www.dell.com/content/topics/global.aspx/power/en/ps2q02_bell]full specs[=http//www.dell.com/content/topics/global.aspx/power/en/ps2q02_bell]full specs[/url].
oh yeah, did i say one server? i meant to say that we got TWO, so that if all of the redundant systems fail (which is so incredibly unlikely i can't even fathom it) i can just flip a switch and be running on the other box in seconds.
