Default Mmmm... RAM!

RAM upgrade is here! So I've finally reached my goal of 128GB. I now have a total of 152GB of RAM dedicated to virtual machines.

The most ram I have shoved into a blade server is 74GB. We only have 8 cores though so that is our biggest limitation.

Not bad...

On a side note, the other day I found out that we are HP's biggest customer in Indiana. Which is sort of cool, until you remember we are in Indiana.

I wish I could afford to spend $450k on my own servers... I do manage over $500k/mo worth of AWS instances though.

I'm setting up few more boxes at my cage. I run a small hosting operation that has few paying customers but is mainly used for R&D.
