23660 In an effort to make my life easier I decided to put PitelSPOT on its own dedicated server. In the past, all my web applications were run from my workstation, which has obvious disadvantages. I appologize to all those cutoff mid-article because I was doing some routine MATLAB/Vista reboot.  I wanted to share the hardware specifications, server features, and installed web applications.

Intel Core i7 2.66 GHz, 130W, Quad-Core with hyperthreading (8 core equivalent)
6 GB of DDR3 memory
two 1 TB  Hitachi hard drives
250 GB Seagate Barracuda hard drive
ASUS P6T Motherboard (16-phase VRM… covered in my dissertation)
rackmount case with 5 hot-swappable drive bays

Server Features
Shadow Copies – Every modification done to a file is backed up seamlessly. Can restore any intance of the file
Image Restoration – Recover entire OS and installed programs according to bi-weekly intervals
Off -Site Storage – Copy files to external hard drive and store offsite (when I remember).
RemoteApp - Load applications remotely within their own window. All application processing is performed on the server.
Consolidated Storage - All of Sheryl’s and my documents are stored in the same spot, regardless of which computer we use.
Virtual Machine Server - Emulate an entire computer in software

Web Applications
WordPress Version 2.7
Gallery 2.3
Deki-Wiki Virtual Appliance
FTP Site
