Don't judge a book by its cover!

Quite often clients see the size of the shop and do not take it seriously. Fact of the matter is, we would rise to YOUR challenge.

One of our clients approached us with the need for a server to capture CCtv footage and work with it in real time. The result? A rack mountable server with 24Gb ram, 2 Xeon six core processors and 14 640Gb 15000Rpm Scsi Sata hard drives.

Thirteen of these drives were set up in RAID-5 for storage purposes and one contained the operating system. This setup resulted in a 12Gb/s transfer rate! Photos are included.


2 six core processors, two threads per core


The finished product


Six 4Gb 1600Mhz ram sticks


How it arrived


Now, I hear the gamers in the back starting to snore? What this means for you, is that we can incorporate the knowledge from similar systems into your PCs. But more on that later.
