Welcome to TweakTown’s new web server, a fast 32C / 64T beast!
welcome to TweakTown on our brand new web server. If you’re reading this, you’re reading from our beastly new webserver!
Given the huge increase in the number of readers TweakTown This year, in part because of COVID lockdowns, we decided it was time to upgrade our old web server. Our old waiter wasn’t that great, but he was starting to show his age, especially in times of heavy traffic. We have spent a tremendous amount of time and resources to make sure TweakTown Not only does it look great and perform well on all devices, it is also consistently fast.
We have invested considerable development resources in deploying all kinds of new web technologies, such as advanced caching techniques, to ensure a great experience. Besides our content itself, these are the key factors that we seek to find for you, our readers.
So, enough of that, let’s get to the juicy part. What parts did we choose our server with? Well, we have gone for the best dedicated server option that our hosts have to offer. Here are the specs:
- Intel Dual Xeon Gold 6226R (32C / 64T)
- 64-bit CentOS 7
- LiteSpeed ââweb server with 8 CPU core license
- 128 GB DDR4 RAM
- 4 SSDs of 480 GB in hardware RAID 10
- Single 1TB SATA hard drive (non-critical data)
- Single 2TB SATA hard drive (onsite backups, in addition to offsite cloud backups)
This is a huge upgrade over our old web server, which included a dual Xeon E5-2620 v3 Hexa-Core setup, half the RAM, hard drives rather than SSDs, and a LiteSpeed ââlicense. With 2 processor cores. In addition, our new server runs the latest versions of the software that runs our site, our database, etc.
Enjoy the performance, readers!
