All is coming along for new server, I look forward to bringing hardware upgrades to all users. I expect in next month we will have some exceptional speed for all databases, websites and anything else. I am pleased to bring you a worthy upgrade.
Tech mumbo jumbo:
Hardware for server all in play now. Working on virtualizing host over next week or 2, and getting any important configurations done. Things are coming along, looks like I will be moving main SunSaturn.com back to FreeBSD since I only converted it to Linux since last server did not support KVM, and rest, CPANEL etc will stay Linux. So focus will largely be on moving from openvz to KVM, and operating system change for SunSaturn.com itself.
A lot of people may say why not move to VMware. Well for a lot of reasons. First of all, I like control of main host to do any advanced configurations, firewalls, openvpn, NFS or whatever I choose. I do not like control of host taken away from me 🙂 As well, host may serve as a SolusVM host down road if I so choose, so reasons not to give control away. Secondly, KVM virtio drivers have been said to outperform VMware ESXI, since we do not want to loose any I/O speed, the choice seems obvious. In reality I only see good coming from open source companies, take a look at MySQL and Mariadb, I have a feeling we will see same thing with Linux KVM/ovirt and VMware. How VMware was even allowed to submit code into Linux kernel, is beyond me. I think in end, open source will prevail, like it always does, when there is no more money in hypervisor market one day, VMware will just be abandon wear like all companies that have come before them. For now, they seem to be needed in enterprise world for companies with many servers to control, and fill a gap, time will tell for how long 🙂
