  1. I work for a local WISP that is growing fast. We have a network admin that has been very good at designing off-the-cuff as they roll out services to customers, but we're in the middle of some growing pains that the owner would like to get a handle on. Current situation: we use UNMS and Splynx to manage CRM and network operations for setting up customers with provisioned internet. Splynx is our core for network management and monitoring, issuing IP's and configuration of our network routers. Tower sites have redudant power and failover equipment all connected and conf
  2. I've been working for a local WISP (wireless internet provider). A few things I've learned about how networks interconnect at various exchanges is that there is some matter of "game" that needs to be played at major datacenter exchanges where all the various providers meet and interconnect. There are several factors that could lead to this kind of hopping issue, and it comes down to two that I can think of off the top of my head: 1. At the physical/topological level: (layer 1-2) the "path" being provided to you and the particular game servers you are connected to have the "lowest cost
  3. So, quick story. A few days ago I added an LSI 9211-8I PCIE expansion card into my custom system (on the older side but still works great). I was able to get to windows flawlessly after swapping around a couple of extra storage hard drives onto the expansion card's sata ports in order to put two SSD's onto the motherboard's Sata ports. Original system config is as follows: Mobo: Asus p6x58d premium CPU: Intel Core i7-980x Extreme Edition 3.33ghz 6-core (Gulftown I believe). CPU Cooler: Corsair H100i V2 AIO RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws 1x16gb (4x4gb) DDR3-1600 & G.Skill Ripjaws 1x8GB (2x4gb) D
  4. I don't need external but you two were extremely helpful in narrowing it down to something worthwhile! Thanks for the recommendations!
  5. So far, that's not terribly over-budget. Found a couple items on Newegg: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Productcompare.aspx?CompareItemList=-1|9SIA67S8284312^9SIA67S8284312%2C9SIA93870V2996^9SIA93870V2996 The IT Mode one has zero reviews and the product picture doesn't even match the description: promising 8 ports (I'm guessing they're fully expecting to breakout the SAS to 4x Sata). Safer bet looks like the Avago one, 4-star rating and at least 30 reviews.
  6. I'm in the market for expanding my internal storage just a couple more SATA ports more. My system is fairly dated, but has been a reliable workhorse. Current system build is as follows: CPU: Intel i7 980 Extreme (Gulftown I believe) Mobo: Asus P6x58d Premium GPU: EVGA Geforce GTX 970 SSC PSU: Corsair HX1000 RAM: G-Skill 16gb DDR3 1600mhz kit, 4gb DDR3 1600mhz RAM x2 (24gb total) Current storage solution - all directly plugged into my mobo: 2x Samsung 850 EVO 500gb's (1st for OS, 2nd for Apps) 5x 7200 RPM WD drives (ranging 2tb to 10tb) fo
  7. As an audio engineer & composer/producer who's been circling around the development community for the past decade, watching the near complete disruption that DIY-era has introduced to the marketplace has caused the major publishers to redefine their business models. The same thing happened to the music industry, then it happened to the film industry, and then it happened to the video game industry. The factors behind the cascade that set the ball rolling may have been unique to each industry, but the stimulus behind the changes developed the same patterns. While Napster may have kil
