linenine’s guts

Ξ May 23rd, 2006 | → Comments Off | ∇ linenine, hardware |

linenine’s physical system is comprised of the following componenents:

Motherboard Asus A8N-VM CSM
Processor Single Opteron 144
Memory 2×512MB CORSAIR Dual Channel DDR400
Storage 1x 36GB 10K rpm Raptor
  3x 320GB SATA 150 WD Caviar - RAID 5
Case Black Antec 2U Case
PSU 400W Antec Power Supply

Here’s some pictures rico42 took for me: 1 2
linenine boots Gentoo Linux from the 36GB Raptor, and then loads EVMS, the utility that turns the other three drives into a RAID5 array. The raid array holds 600GB of single-fault tolerant storage. This way, if a drive ever dies, we’ll be able to jsut throw another drive in, rebuild the array, and go on our way.
