Rack mount switch

cisco, HP, LAN, network, ProCurve, rackmount, switch, WAN, work

One of the many to get Hewlett Packard ProCurve switch… need to replace the more than 10 years old Cisco hubs… yes HUB… but all of them… about 16 units with each having 16 UTP ports and a single fiber port as backbone have been running strong like bull… 24×7… for the past 10 years or so… and they are all rackmount type… and they cost a bomb each during its heyday… πŸ˜€

HP ProCurve switch with 24 UTP ports and 4 dual-personality ports for fiber connection.

So, 2010 is going to be a challenging year… to keep up the speed demand… or is it speed demon… speed hungry applications… πŸ˜› But we can only speed up the LAN… for the LAN applications… but there is no way for us to get a better WAN speed… πŸ˜› hoping 2010 will give us more WAN speed for us to reach the world out there… πŸ˜›

Need More Servers

HP, server

I need to setup 3 servers this week. But after further analysis, I may only need 1 server because I don’t want to waste the Xeon servers. I will use it for the real stuff later. I need a new license manager server for some of the engineering applications. So, it’s going to be busy week for me… and it might spill over till next week. Then have to go outstations to fix other stuff too… πŸ˜› I hope I can start doing it tomorrow, but at the same time there will be a system discussion tomorrow… important system… πŸ˜›
