Meet BerryReview’s New "Better, Faster, Stronger" Server

you will be upgraded

If you have visited BerryReview since the BlackBerry Live keynote last week you may have noticed a nice speed boost. Our awesome hosts at MediaLayer did a beautiful and seamless upgrade of our main server. For those spec geeks out there we are now running on an Intel Xeon E3 1230v2 (3.3Ghz/3.7Ghz quad-core) with 8GB of RAM packing some beautiful SSDs instead of our previous 15K SAS drives. It all held up beautifully during the crushing traffic wonderful readers like you brought to BerryReview during the BlackBerry Live keynote and our liveblogs.

You will be noticing quite a few other holistic changes on BerryReview shortly so stay tuned as we iron them out! You may have even noticed a few we rolled out and have not announced yet…

  1. Its the new Cybermen from Dr Who

  2. Cyberman from Doctor Who Season 7.
    To be honest – I cheated with Google Images.
    Honestly, looks like a cross between Iron Man and a Crash Test Dummy.

  3. i was gunna say Tony Stark from the glowing blue circle

  4. 8GB of RAM is not enough for ZFS and if that’s not your file system, you’re missing out 😉

  5. You have been upgraded!

    • Glad to see I’m not the only junky :) still need to get a sonic screwdriver.

      @ofutur I have only setup ZFS on Solaris before in high performance environments. The self healing was nice but right now IO is not our bottleneck.

  6. Welp, the website loaded pretty darn quickly.

  7. Running Cybermen watchout. Would that be OS ver 12?
