These servers have had new hard disks installed giving 547Gb of 10k RPM 300Gb SAS disks on a Perc 6/i RAID 10 array.

The total setup and install time was 2 hours. =]

This will allow for:

  1. Relocation and expansion of disk hungry VMs from himalia and leda.
  2. Relief from gnt-cluster1 making the way for an upgrade of that cluster.
  3. Allow for VMs with up to a maximum of 7 virtual CPUs.
