    So, how is the new tweb server configured? I'm just curious. Did you implement some kind of RAID controller or is it virtual with a SAN backup? Is it still dedicated?

        It is a wooden box run by a Mehgerbil powered hamster wheel. Backups are done on parchment.

            You have too many processors dedicated to silly pirate.

                  Thanks

                  Where I work, we have started virtualizing all physical boxes... we're up to over 300 VMs now, it's ridiculous. I have one application I support that has a net total of 22 processors and 44GB RAM by itself. I'm surprised my server management team hasn't tried to draw and quarter me...

                      From their website:


                      Backups & Snapshots

                      Automatically set your server to be backed up. Or take a snapshot when you reach a milestone. Snapshots are great as you can build a new server from a snapshot you took, saving you valuable configuration time.

                          Yup, this. Backups done automatically every 2 days. Plus I occasionally drop a database image to my hard drive.

                              Did we switch from inmotion hosting after the TWeb crash?
