Eight cores, four gigs, ten raids, oh my!

Last week, I dealt with an outage of my “business-grade” Internet connection for the last time. The solution? A managed server, courtesy of SoftLayer.

For a pretty darn good price, I get full access to a dual quad-core server with 4 gigs of RAM and 500GB of usable disk space in a RAID10 array. Add in an awesome web-based control panel, an excellent sales staff (thanks, Michael!), and provisioning in less than two hours, it seems like the right decision so far.

It’ll take some time before I migrate completely to this new rig, but until then, I can enjoy the following scenery.
