New Year – New Dell Server!

:: Wednesday, January 6th, 2010 @ 1:48 pm

I’m not going to bore you with all the details and politics surrounding my need to build-up a new Web Server for Oceanimagery.com… Instead I’ll try to keep this short and sweet for once. There were circumstances which developed towards the end of last year which required me to re-locate my Web Server to a new IT company here in the area. After doing some research on several different IT and hosting companies, their networks and infrastructures, I decided to Colo with a company known as HopOne Internet.

I’ll be placing a refurbished Dell PowerEdge 2850 at the new Co-location and then tweaking it off-site before moving my DNS over. Once the new Web Server is up and running (properly that is) then I’ll pull the plug on the old machine. Since the new server will be at an ‘off-site’ location, I’ll no longer have direct physical access to it with out first making a service ticket and then scheduling an appointment time to get into the facility. For this reason (and others) I felt that having a more powerful, more reliable server at the new location would make more sense!
