We recently bought a bunch of new servers stacked with RAM and dual quad core CPUs. They will be used for backend processing of Pingdom’s monitoring data and some other tasks.
We shipped them out to a data center in Stockholm a couple of weeks ago, and wanted to share some photos of the “event” with you.
Just like Christmas!
Hardware, hardware and… more hardware. It’s always a joy getting new toys. We mean server equipment! ðŸ˜‰
Oooooh, pretty cables…
Getting packed and ready to go
This last picture doesn’t show it, but of course we strapped the servers down and added some extra padding to make sure they would be nice and comfy during the 90-minute trip from VÃ¤sterÃ¥s to Stockholm.
May we add that this blog is now running on one of these servers?
