Hardware Resources

  • Or I can provide a KVM Virtual Machine with way enough CPU Power and around 10GB RAM almost surely. ist currently running there. The problem is diskspeed if we really want to render Swiss Style Tiles, as the disks are used for other Projects too and are just 7200rpm SATA. It is possible to attach a storage system to the server. But that would cost some money. --Beni 19:53, 16 June 2011 (BST)
    I never done some test but I think that for the database an SSD disk can be a good solution. Stéphane 08:56, 6 July 2011 (BST)
  • An alternate solution can be a DediBox. Stéphane 21:14, 3 July 2011 (BST)
