A-brand server hardware

hardwareWebMeso only makes use of A-brand hardware. Hardware requirements for servers vary, depending on the server application. Servers' duties are usually accessed by fast network connections and provide service to a great number of users over a network which results in different requirements and high I/O interface.

Server hardware

Servers often run in headless mode without a monitor for long periods without any kind of interruption. It's extremely important for servers to have a high uptime and availability. A-brand hardware results in reliability, durability and performance.

Server hardware: CPU

cpu coolerCPU also called Central Processing Unit is the actual heart of the server. A single core processor has one, a dual core has two, a quad core has four and a hexa core has six central processing units. The speed of a processer is shown in Ghz (gigahertz), basically one billion cycles per second. The higher the number the more cycles a second. All cores operate at the speed shown. In order to get a correct estimate of overall speed is to multiply the speed by the number of cores. The performance depends on the clock rate and the Instructions Per Clock (IPC).

Server hardware: RAM

ddr3 ramRAM also called Random-Access Memory is the intern memory of the server. Double-Data-Rate Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory, better known as DDR SDRAM or DDR RAM for short, is a type of very fast computer memory. RAM speed works in conjunction with the front side bus (FSB) of a computer system. The FSB is the two-way data channel that sends information from the central processing unit (CPU) throughout the motherboard to the various components, including the RAM, BIOS chips, hard drives and PCI slots.

Server hardware: HDD

harddiskHDD also called the Hard Disk Drive is a non-volatile storage device that stores digitally encoded data on rapidly rotating rigid (i.e. hard) platters with magnetic surfaces. HDD can also be placed in a RAID system, which will pre-check before starting to operate and gives total redundancy. Serial ATA is an evolutionary replacement for the Parallel ATA physical storage interface. Users of the Serial ATA interface benefit from greater speed, simpler upgradeable storage devices and easier configuration.
