Notes

         
    All servers have been reorganized into rack-mount cases and placed into a full-size rack. All other components have been arranged into the rack accordingly. The servers share one Dell 1704FPT 17" LCD monitor, one Dell keyboard, and one Logitech Trackman Wheel Optical.  
         
              
         
    All systems utilize a networked Apple Laserwriter 8500 laser printer.  
         
    Two of my servers were previously connected to one monitor, keyboard, and mouse using a 2-port Belkin KVM system switch. All four are now connected to a 4-port Belkin KVM system switch.  
         
    This Dell 5324 24-port gigabit Ethernet switch connects the main network.  
         
    The 3Ware 9500S-4LP SATA PCI-X RAID controller is currently in my third server. It has 128MB PC133 SDRAM installed.  
         
    The LSI MegaRAID Elite 1650 (495) U320 LVD SCSI PCI-X RAID controller is currently in my file server. It has 128MB ECC SDRAM installed.  
         
    The LSI MegaRAID Enterprise 1600 (471) U160 LVD SCSI PCI-X RAID controller is currently in my main server. It has 128MB ECC SDRAM installed.  
         
    The AMI MegaRAID Elite 1600 (493) U160 LVD SCSI PCI-X RAID has been retired. It had 128MB ECC SDRAM installed.  
         
    These two AMI MegaRAID Express 200 (466) Ultra-2 Wide LVD SCSI controllers used to be in the file server. Both serve as backup/spare controllers and have 64MB FPM parity RAM installed. Both support a maximum of 128MB.  
         
    This is the AMI MegaRAID 1200 (428) Ultra-Wide SCSI controller that has been used in both my main and file servers. It serves as a backup/spare controller and has 128MB FPM parity RAM installed.  
         
    The HP MSA30 RAID chassis currently has ten Fujitsu MAW3147NC 146GB Ultra-320 LVD SCSI HDDs in a RAID 5 array totaling 1.314TB in size. There is a single hot spare of the same kind.  
         
         
    The first build of my current file server RAID array was controlled using both AMI MegaRAID Express 200 (466) controllers. Each ran four Quantum Atlas 10K II 36GB Ultra-160 LVD SCSI drives in a RAID 5 configuration, for a total of 108GB. Each had one hot spare, for a grand total of ten drives.  
         
      The old array had six Seagate Cheetah ST173404LCV 73GB Ultra-160 LVD SCSI HDDs in a RAID 5 array totaling 340GB in size.  
         
          
         
    Here are some shots of my old file server RAID 5 array. At one time, it was comprised of four Quantum Atlas 10K 18WLS 18GB Ultra-160 LVD SCSI drives totaling 54GB in size. These drives were previously in my main server.  
         
    The case used for this array now contains the three Seagate Cheetah ST173404LCV 73GB Ultra-160 LVD SCSI drives in a RAID 5 array configuration totaling 146GB in size in my main server. The drives have since been installed inside the server case, and the external case has been retired.  
         
    The NetgearNAS Duo RND2150 has two Seagate 500GB SATA-II drives installed.  
         
       
         
       
         
    Backups are now stored on a Seagate ST310005EXA101-RK 1TB USB hard drive. Backup speeds are comparable with a Compaq or Sony SDX-500C 50/130GB AIT-2 Ultra2 Wide SCSI tape drive.  
         
    The DiscZerver Cyclone NAS two hard drives: a Maxtor 94091U8 40GB HDD and a Quantum Fireball lct20 30GB HDD. A Toshiba SD-M1402 12x/40x DVD-ROM drive is used for copying. The unit has a 10/100 NIC for network connectivity. The main CPU board has an AMD K6-2 350, 256MB PC100 SDRAM, and additional connectivity for Wide SCSI devices.
