are splashing the cash on a new dedicated gaming server.
Our new toy is a Dell R210 plus server provided by our friends at Gaming Deluxe
. They made us a very good offer for a machine with specification of CPU: Intel Xeon X3450 2.66GHz ( Quad Core With HT ), RAM: 4GB ECC, HDD: 160-250GB.
The dedicated server will replace our previous arrangements of various shared servers. It allows us to do more, for a lower outlay. We expect to be able to run three Battlefield 3 servers and a further game, along with our Procon remote admin systems and Teamspeak 3. As ever we will be integrating anticheat systems such as PBBans to our game servers. A significant advantage of the dedi box will be an ability for us to change the games we are running periodically.
Of course changing servers does mean that bookmarks and favourites on your home computers will need to be amended. Please see the Gameservers listings
for details of our current line-up.
