SQL Server Performance Forum – Threads Archive
Any folks here in North Texas?<br />I frequently use this forum but rarely post… but every once in a while I like to offer my toybox for anyone here who might be looking for new hardware / disks that want to test in an environment outside of your own…<br /><br />I work with the Unisys / Microsoft partnership here in Dallas and we have available:<br /><br />32-bit system -<br />(32) Processor Xeon 3.0 4mb cache<br />(32) Gb RAM<br />(16) Emulex LP9002 2Gbit <br />(<img src=’/community/emoticons/emotion-11.gif’ alt=’8)’ /> Intel Pro1000<br /><br />64-bit system – <br />(16) Itanium 1.5 6mb cache<br />(64) Gb RAM<br />(16) Emulex 9802 2Gb<br />(<img src=’/community/emoticons/emotion-11.gif’ alt=’8)’ /> Intel Pro1000<br /><br />SAN -<br />14+ Tb of EMC storage divided amongst 36gb 15k, 146gb 10k, and SATA 250gb (mostly 36s for performance.)<br /><br />Each of these are easily configured with Datacenter or Enterprise Edition as needed, and being at the Microsoft facility we have access to some of the best PSS/CPR folks on the SQL Server and Windows OS teams.<br /><br />If any of you guys are looking at larger scalable SQL configurations (8 processors and up… remember that Dell dropped out of 32-bit 8x world, and HP is about to do the same.) let me know. We can test your environment from 1 to 32 processors and use our GUI to quickly and easily change memory and processor counts between each boot.<br /><br />I can be contacted here on SSP or at [email protected] We have replicated this configuration in other Microsoft facilities, so let me know if you have needs outside of the DFW area.<br /><br />Take care guys!<br />Adam<br /><br /><br /><br /><br />—————–<br />Adam Hicks<br />Windows Datacenter Certified Professional<br />Unisys Corporation<br />Dallas, TX
