We are up and somewhat happy.
I have been following threads (in case you don’t know I bought a 4 proc Dell recently) and the Opteron seems the way to go.
I just called HP for a quote, but don’t want to make any mistakes.
Is the battery backed cache good or bad for Postgres?
They are telling me I can only get a duel channel card if I want hardware raid 10 on the 14 drives.
I can get two cards but it has to be 7 and 7 (software raid?) which does not sound like it fixes my single point of failure (one of the listers mentioned my current system has 3 such single points).
Any of you hardware gurus spell out the optimal machine (I am hoping to be around 15K, might be able to go more if it’s a huge difference, I spent 30k on the Dell).
I do not have to go HP, and after seeing the fail ratio from Monarch from one lister I am bit scared shopping there.
Was there a conclusion on where is best to get one (I really want two one for development too).
