    I'll mostly need services for
    -software development enviroment, like different systems to run my programs in, version control server etc. Some tasks need different versions of database servers installed.
    -webpages, other public services and what's related to it.
    -electronic portfolio
    -showcasing possible system setups for potential customers.
    -support team projects I sometimes have, mostly with services that facilitate communication and groupwork
    -support help desk & computer fixing I sometimes do
    -intranet
    If you're virtualising then isn't Mac better? One of my friends is quite a virtualisation nut and he specifically got a Mac... can't remember precisely why but he reckons it runs better on a Mac.

    As for RAMDisks, have you seen OCZs next project? A RAM disc that's effectively run in RAID through the PCI-E slot. Some ridiculous speeds and even more ridiculous prices...

    Man I'd love one to run my computer on...

    Btw, don't you find your thrashing the nuts of the processor and memory trying to deal with the huge I/O?

    ^^ I don't know Xand, i've never seen it brought up when good price/money has been discussed - not to say that it might do well. I've gathered Apple is in for more of a user friendly products, great support and that kind of thing - not the current corporate thing, Blade Servers and PC stuff, and it's corporates which are mostly what I'm trying to get as customers.

    Might be cool to expand to macs tho. I'm seeing more of a need for linux, personally. But, that's just my situation. The three OS families complement each other nicely, there's use and feel for everyone.

    Windows must be the incarnation of a rich, tyrannic bastard tho.

    ..


    But, Cpu utilization per I/O? Good idea. I'll do one right now.

    Transfer of 250MB/s, from RAM device to SSD:

    One of 2,8GB/s, from RAM to RAM. It does go trough CPU.

    Seems like the RAM disk to RAM disk transfer has about 50% lower CPU utilization per MB transferred. Transfers were continuous with a much greater transfer size that could fit on cache.

    Oh I'm afriad I'm not a fan of Linux for anything but specific apps. I'm no programmer and the GUI seems no more than something nice to look at as you make the rest of the OS as you go along.


    Mr Gates is a fan though...

    Sorry I didn't mean transfer, I meant more the processing. I mean the RAMDisk has to have a huge through put capacity. Surely it fills the pipelines of the CPU to overflowing?

    I mean if you installed an OS from the RAMDisk to the RAMDisk then doesn't the rest of the computer break out in a cold sweat? I'm figuring you've got DDR3 and a Core i7 running on that machine but still I'd expect it to max out.

    This RAMdisk is in host's real RAM. That is why there is no pci-express or other bus I/O involved. The delay of the memory is thus well reflected in the CPU utilization chart.

    p.s. It's cheaper to buy MB that supports big memory - from 8Gb to 128Gb, and to buy the memory - than it is to buy I/O bus connected physical RAM devices.

    On 50% probability, my next server will have about 64-128Gb RAM. I'll program a special-purpose web crawler, content analysis engine and search engine. I'll start in in a year or year and a half.

    Those are awesome pictures, the Decline, I always thought Betelguese was the largest
    star until now. Guess my astronomy knowledge is out of date.
