Introducing Our Servers

Our server lineup has changed quite a bit since my last update on this topic, so here's a little rundown on the machines that power mee.nu today.

The aircraft carrier of our fleet is Aoi.*  Aoi is a dual-processor hex-core hyperthreaded Xeon 5670, for a total of 12 CPUs and 24 hardware threads.  With 24GB of RAM, 3 x 2TB drives and 3 x 32GB Intel SSDs in RAID-5, Aoi runs eight specialised virtual machines handling various tasks for the mee.nu and mu.nu ecosystems, including the main blog hosting platform.

Our destroyer escort is provided by Midori and Momoko.  These are dual-core Xeon 3060 systems with 4GB of RAM and 500GB of disk each, and handle backup and website statistics.

Our newest server is Kurumi, a quad-core Xeon 3220 with 8GB of RAM and 1TB of disk.  Kurumi has a 1Gbit internet connection and 100TB of monthly bandwidth, and acts as a front-end cache for media files and other large downloads.  I'm not entirely sure what kind of ship that represents, though...

* All our servers are named after girls in anime series who are named for colours.  Aoi is blue, Midori is green, Momoko is momo-iro, peach-coloured, and Kurumi is brown.
