Need More Computers

Yesterday installed Fedora 10 on Zange-chan.
Currently installing OpenSolaris on Tsugumi.
Then Windows XP on Takako (and Shino as well if I can find a spare key).

Next, I'll wipe Haruhi and load CentOS 5.2 with OpenVZ, and spin off Yuki, Mikuru, Ryoko and Tsuruya as CentOS userlands, variously 32-bit (for application servers) and 64-bit (for databases and stuff).

Then I can move everything off Yurie and load up CentOS 5.2 there as well, and then likewise fire up Mitsue, Matsuri, Miko and Chou-chan.

Hey, that's only 15 computers!  Just wait until I've validated this plan and put it into production.  My plans for '09 involve spreading and (and their friends) out across at least 20 virtual servers.

Which means I'm going to run out of names very quickly.

1 You seem to have abandoned using the names of goddesses, and now are using their friends as well. Even that conceit is a limited lode, though.

2 Yep, the physical nodes are named after the goddesses, and the virtual nodes after their friends...  Family, pets, etc. wink

Not sure quite how this is going to work in production.  What I'm planning to do is have one big production server with Virtuozzo (the commercial version of OpenVZ), a nice big RAID array for storage, and a fast SSD for the databases.  Then I'll spin off single-purpose virtual environments as needed, so this one is a database server, that's a Minx application server, this one is for users who want to run CPanel and WordPress.  Large users like Ace might get their own dedicated environment tuned to their needs.

I need to verify that 32-bit userland nodes on a 64-bit kernel run Psyco successfully.  That's the Python JIT compiler, and it cuts the page generation time for Minx in half, but only works in 32-bit mode.  Currently I'm running 32-bit Linux on all the servers, but that has its own issues, so I'm experimenting with a 64-bit kernel and 32-bit virtual environments.
