What happens to all the old equipment? Do you sell it to try recover some of the cost?


Note the close temporal proximity of this deployment to the addition of Duality to the server repertoire. Opportunists.

Thanks for the update, I always wondered how you all were handling the traffic on your SQL cluster. I'm a Microsoft Consultant for partner organizations in the US, so I'm all too familiar with the SQL layout and lack of compute clustering with MSSQL. I was a bit surprised to hear you were literally running all of TQ on one beefy (that's an understatement) SQL box with a failover SQL cluster. I love what you did with the SSD SAN, and I'm sure that given the amount of traffic you guys pull, that is really the only way to go. My question for the SQL part is what version of Microsoft SQL server are you running in the node? SQL 2008 R2 Enterprise? I saw the bit about HyperThreading and thought you might still be using a 32-bit Windows 2008 OS.
Just curious, thanks for the geek blog

Its too bad this doesn't make a difference for lag.

With the improved database failover, does this mean that nodes will soon be able to get reinforced in realtime, perhaps even automatically via load sensing?

So, to a layman, is this considered "cutting-edge" or just "really, REALLY good" stuff?

Just wondering if development of this sort of computing capacity lends itself to other industries? Does CCP interact with other industries to help them in developing this kind of computing power?

TL;DR: Could TQ find a cure for cancer, an alternative to fossil fuels and an efficient way to travel across the galaxy if we weren't using it to play games?

For it's purpose, it's bleeding edge. There have been other things done in different spaces, but for gaming, CCP is way ahead.

What that guy said... It isn't made of stuff only found in Area 51 Silos... but for a DB... it is way at the top and edge of what can be done. The V7000 is very very new and we have been testing since it released.

Yeah...

Well unfortunately we/I, that have played eve for a while now (~5 years), keep hearing through the years of all these great things CCP is doing to reduce lag. Will it really make a difference? Probably not.

The "cure for cancer" and "SETI" programs love other kind of power: GPU power.. Thats because CPU's arent very good at floating "stuff" Wink

Oh and a bit offtopic: fossil fuels arent from fossils: http://www.wnd.com/?pageId=45838 Very Happy

Yeah I remember those awesome lag-free 700-man battles we used to get in 2006 as well. Rolling Eyes

Seriously, if you can't stand the lag in massive fleet battles, why be a member of an alliance who specifically and deliberately use node crashing as a "tactic"?

Peak TQ performance is pretty good right now. Peak fleet size has increased far faster, in part because of people like your own fleet commanders. Blame them as well if you're going to blame CCP.

Awesome new servers! Must admit, i had to fap after reading all that tech ****.

So hmm, one can only wonder what the next iteration will be like.. SOL blades beeing nVidia tesla based? Because that would sort of kick ass. But it would also require you rewrite the game from ground up hrmm? My only logic here being "if it can simulate an atomic bomb detonating in the ground, it must be good enough for fleetfights!"

I spotted a few errors that caused my Database nerd rage to... well rage.

1) Buffer Cache hit ratio is mostly irrelevant to database performance.
2) RAM isn't the biggest performance factor for Databases, knowing how to use a database is. See the Bounty change a few years ago.
3) Anyone named "Denormalized" shouldn't be allowed with in 500 meters of a database.

Number 3 is the most important one.
