Hey Guys, let us take a deeper look on our Infrastructure. In the next few blocks I will show up a lot of technical Informations about the technical background of Gleam of Things 😉
At the beginning of Gleam of Things, a historical memory…
… started a long time ago, Stephan a I decided to start something together. Both of us are quite a bit of Nerds. We want always the new stuff, participating the bleeding Edge of IT-Things.
So we created our Blog on my old Server. It was an ESXi Server which was hosted by OVH in Roubaix. But after 5 Years of usage i decided to make a new step and here we are now 😉 Maybe i will write a resume of my old Friends the Server’s at OVH 😉 Brilliant Hoster, powerful Servers but focused on mainstream Enduser and not in Stephan’s and my thoughts about the Internet of Things 😉
So here we are now, a new Server, a new Home. Let us start a new Chapter together.
Ok, let’s start with a look on our Server, lovely called FUCKUP…, here are some specifications:
Model: ProLiant DL120 Gen9
CPU: Xeon E5-2620v3 (6 Cores)
RAM: 32 GB (2x 16 GB DDR4 ECC Registered)
Disk: 2x TB within a Software based Raid 1
OS: CentOS 7.2
So you can see, quite a powerful base to work on it 😉
Let’s talk about our Connectivity, our Datacenter is based in Straßburg (Europe) and connected with more than 550 Gbit/s Backbone Bandwidth to the World. We can use the Power from different Providers, like Deutsche Telekom, Level 3, Global Crossing, cogent, DE-CIX, interoute, and some more.
Enough Power and Bandwidth for a Startup Project like Gleam of Things
But who is our technical Partner, so at least let me introduce our Hoster. Our Server runs in one of the Datacenter from serverloft.de, there a great people and the Support will provide us 24/7 support with a 4h SLA for Hardware-Issues and a Uptime guarantee form 99,9%
So that was my short Introducing of our technical base, if you want more Informations or want us to ask some Questions, feel free to leave us a comment 😉
And for all of you, wich might thought „Why these Guys named there Server „FUCKUP““ It has a deeper Reason 😉
