Despite having configured SPF, DKIM and DMARC for my email domain, I recently noticed that the mail queue of my Zimbra server was going through the roof with thousands of undelivered and postponed email messages, mostly with sender “mailer-daemon” and some recipient I did not know. If you run a Zimbra server and have this problem or perhaps even better; if you don’t have it yet and don’t want to have it, read on.
The organization CITIES under Denmarks Technical University has ordered a private cloud from Origo Systems with expected entry into general service January 3rd 2017. CITIES needs lots of computing power for calculations and for running custom scientific applications, and have chosen Origo Systems’ hardware og software platform for building a scalable scientific infrastructure cloud.
In Price of the Clouds we compared prices of running servers in various clouds. In this article we will compare performance. We will compare the same server configurations we compared prices for in the previous article, i.e. as clos as we can get to 2 vCPU’s, 4 GB RAM and SSD-disks. We’ll measure performance on processors, RAM, storage and networking.
Do you manage your company’s servers? Perhaps you are considering buying some hardware, installing VMware on it and get it up and running in your server room. It is surely more affordable than the public clouds you would think, or is it? A virtual Linux or Windows server is by now such a standardized commodity, that we think it makes very much sense to try and compare the different available options. What is really the most inexpensive way to run, say 20 moderate size virtual servers for 3 years? VMware, AWS, Digital Ocean, Origo Cloud or a private cloud?
Technician Jakob Wadsager at work, hot-swapping a failed board in one of our Engines.
We will soon be launching our new compute service into a market which is dominated by huge players with near infinite ressouces, specifically Amazon and Google. We do however not think their compute products are very well suited for the typical enterprise client.
If you have ordered an Engine C1 or if you are just curious about how it works, read on. This post will try to give a brief overview of how to get an Engine C1 up and running, and how to fire up your first app on your new engine.
