But can you play Doom on it?

A good day: when your client tells you the server for their new CMS is ready, and you see this in Task Manager.

That’s an 8-way box with 8GB of RAM. To run a single CMS. For a public high school.

  1. That’s an 8-way box with 8GB of RAM. To run a single CMS. For a public high school.

    That’s rich. Somebody’s tax dollars hard at work. Please tell us what school district; perhaps there needs to be a little more accountability in setting the IT budget?

  2. Are you sure it’s a physical 8-way server and not either a dual quad core or quad dual core CPUs? Either way, that is certainly a beefy system. I just finished deploying a [pilot] site using Ektron that is setup on similar hardware (dedicated staging enivronment with seperate web and db servers and a production environment that consists of two load balanced web servers and a single db server).
