There is never a need to go OEM if your requirements are clearly pre-defined, and if you purchase wisely and have the skill you can likely outperform an OEM setup as they are built to suit a wide variety of needs not necessarily built for a specific project.
SuperMicro is actually highly...
I've been trying since about 10am EST with no luck - always times out when trying to pull up the ATT info on my upgrade eligibility. ATT has fucked over apple so many times - they can't even sell pre-orders because ATT can't get its servers...
We run our exchange and a couple database servers each with their own RAID10/1+0 setups to ensure optimal I/O.
DNS. AD, and less intensive servers share a large RAID 5 Lun and our file servers have their own RAID 5 lun as well.
Virtual Machine Manager 2008 R2 makes managing and deploying a snap.
Most certainly not true.
From my perspective - I support a trading system that gets updated on a frequent basis - new strategies, algos, high frequency trading etc...It's a big app - 400MB plus.
Upgrading a whole office worth of PC's compared to rolling out the patch to one or two TS's...
Is the EMR system use a fat client? e.g. you install something on each workstation?
Does it frequently get updated or patched? Patching 20-30 workstations for a minor fix is a pain.
Patching 1 terminal server so all the workstations get the update is simple.
Check it out - with RemoteFX they are working towards remote media rich desktop environments - even with full support of 3D accelerated apps. Just no firm release date yet :)
What type of switch are they running through - try hard coding the duplex settinga across all the NIC's or make sure they match either 100 MB Full/Auto across all NICs.
Some NIC's can auto-negotiate while others just suck @ it causing them to spend half their time negotiating the specifics of...
as far as bang for you buck - the ideal situation is to get in on the mid level procs with a ton of overclocking headroom. The i920 has been out for a bit, but has the head room to hit those 975 speeds for much less money.
The higher end chips typically have less headroom as they have already...
MC in cambridge is my local store of choice - I've directed all my friends there and swearing off as many people as I can from best buy or really any other brick & mortar electronics store.
I typically do the order online and in-store pickup - which rocks - but on two separate occasions I've...
Hyper V on 2008 R2 combined with Virtual Machine Manager 2008 R2 is very very slick.
VMWare is king of enterprise - but I feel Hyper V is poised to dominate the the small the medium size virtualization setups. Support for clustering for HA and dip its toes into the hyper visor arena.
I read this one over a weekend - scheduled and took the exam on a tuesday....
If you had a 94 in an academic network course you should be able to skim any prep...
Any body have any white papers handy on this topic? Particularly in capacity planning for a QA/Lab environment where kicking out new servers needs to be able to be done in a quick logical fasion to make the most of available hardware.
Along the same lines as above - if you are looking for the bang for buck air cool that ish with a nice TRUE 120.
But on the other hand --- why not? If you are looking for an OC build that could hit some nice numbers go with a custom WC setup.
how many tables/objects in the DB?
Is the performance level suck constantly or only during certain times?
Do you do any reporting off this DB? COuld be blocking or deadlocking on the table structure causing the timeout.
re-index the core tables and update the index statistics...
Windows debug view can log real time what a particular process is doing.
From what you posted it sounds like the disconnects are not networking based but could be caused by timeouts from blocking or deadlocking in the database.
There are install tweaks and then there are usability tweaks.
Worlds apart. Customizing your shell and widgets/color/scheme etc is half the fun. If you reinstall the OS cleanly on a somewhat regular basis it would be worth it to automate this somewhat, no?
Just loaded my frequently used apps or app packages up on an external drive as install shields or isos, backed up the pictures and itunes library and fired away.All games are installed from steam...so lilttle wait there but nothing i find unacceptable.
I've come to do a rebuild every 6 months...
Made this same diecision - i7 vs SSD OS drive. Went with the intel and replaced my aging 74G raptor. The army of ants that make a racket are gone and the performance on boot and day to day use is silly. SSD upgrade is the way to go.
80gigs is plenty of space for OS+apps+games.
It's all about space management. If you uninstall all the games you don't play on a regular basis...bam space becomes readily available.
Oh and that is a smokin deal. Paid a lil more than that @ Microcenter for mine.
i use vuze on Vx64 and 7x64 without issue. Once you wade through the crap i love the built in RSS feeds for TV shows or movie releases...haven't played with uTorrent in a bit...it have those features too now?
