I'll Take A Dozen Gross

An ad from the provider I'll be getting the next server from:
- Pentium D 930 (NOTE, WE ONLY HAVE 10 of these)
1x500GB HDD
100,000GB Bandwidth
Price: $133.65 /month - free setup
Yes, that's the correct number of zeroes. smile

I'll be keeping the main system on the current hardware, and using one of these (actually a somewhat larger model, but the same bandwidth) to offload bulk content (podcasts, videos, file downloads, media streams) automatically via Minx.  That essentially erases my bandwidth worries for the next five years.

1 100 TB for $133?!? Eek! I pay about 20 times more per TB... (Fortunately for my pocketbook, I'm only paying for 1 TB on my teensy tiny server.) Hmm... If I'm doing my arithmetic correctly, that corresponds to about 300 Mbps continuous for 30 days, can a Pentium D 930 really push that much out (while pulling 38 MB/s off a 7200 RPM drive)?

2 Realistically, there's no way that server is going to push 100TB a month.  But even if you're only getting 10TB, it's still a great deal.  And your arithmetic is spot-on. smile
