Z800 Workstation Donated

Post by bjcollin » Fri Oct 12, 2018 4:14 pm

Howdy,

Good News! Somebody donated a HP Z800 workstation to our ministry. It is a beast of a computer with 2 Intel Xeon CPU's 4 cores each (8 cores total), 16GB RAM, 2 DVD Drives 1 reader/1 writer, and 2 Hard Disks 80GB and 1TB. I am in the process of getting this new computer set up to eventually become our hosting server to replace my ancient HP PC that is hosting the board currently. This will happen possibly over the Thanksgiving or Christmas holidays. Thank you.

in Christ,

For now, I have decided to install Antsle edgeLinux OS onto the new Z800 workstation. It is a virtual cloud type of Linux operating system that allows me to create KVM virtual machines and/or LXC virtual containers on the fly much like the Amazon AWS cloud does. I have started getting an antlet (CentOS v7.5 KVM with LAMP stack) setup to hold the board. Hopefully I can get everything transferred over and get it to work right on the first try and have minimal downtime on the board for the switch over. I will let you guys know before I do a test switch over for the new server hopefully one weekend in November or December. Thank you.

in Christ,
