The future

This is just part one of our server adventure - there is plenty more to come. As we write, we've just added in the second processor, meaning that we are running at the full core capacity across the two chips - awesome stuff. We've got the full 8GB of FB-DIMM memory stuffed in there, and everything is running great.

Next up, we're going to install Linux through VMWare and use the VT hardware virtualisation technology built into Intel's latest chips to run a separate operating system. Once we've got Linux installed, we're going to set up a Battlefield 2 server that you will be able to connect to. Once that's done, we're going to virtualise yet another operating system through VMWare - maybe WinXP, just for a laugh! - and get Quake 4 up and running on that.

Stay tuned to these pages for a chronicle of our progress. It all goes well, we should have it all up and running by the end of September. Until then:
