HP ProLiant ML350 Generation 6 (G6)

http://h18004.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/13241_na/13241_na.html

"# Memory:

* 18 DIMM Slots
* Up to 144GB, using PC3-8500R DDR3 Registered (RDIMM) memory, operating at 800MHz when fully populated at 3 DIMMs per Channel in 18 slots
* Up to 24GB, using PC3-10600E DDR3 Unbuffered (UDIMM) memory, operating at 1066MHz when fully populated at 2 DIMMs per Channel in 12 slots"

Actually, I was just joking around for the most part, but yes, one of the newer ML350's is indeed capable of up to 144 GB of ram, using the correct dimms.

My Next Computer - Poll

My next computer will be a netbook with an ARM processor. I am purchasing it for portability.

That said, I would also like to upgrade my abacus. I have a Chinese style Saun Pan with 13 columns. I would like a Japanese style Soroban with more columns. The Saun Pan is good for hexadecimal calculation but I am not (currently) a programmer, so decimal calculation is more appropriate and the extra rows on the Saun Pan can be confusing.

I don't want to spend more than $20 on this project. Like most people I use a calculator when needed. For simple calculation "feeling" the numbers has certain appeal, and it certainly impresses guests when you whip it out to keep score in a game.

Does anyone know where I can pick up a nice Soroban on my $20 budget?

I don't see an option for a

I don't see an option for a server on here.

I have my eye on a "refurbished" HP ML 350 64 gb ram and 3 120 gb sata hot swap hd's. only one dual core amd proc in it now but it can carry 2.

re: Server

Is that 64G of ram a typo - I don't think any ML350 goes past 32G (but I'm not a HP rep nor do I play one on TV so what do I know).

Docker in Production — What We’ve Learned Launching Over 300 Million Containers

Earlier this year, we made a decision to run every task on IronWorker inside its own Docker container. Since then, we've run over 300,000,000 programs inside of their own private Docker containers on cloud infrastructure. Now that we’ve been in production for several months, we wanted to take the opportunity to share with the community some of the challenges we faced in running a Docker-based infrastructure, how we overcame them, and why it was worth it.

Review: Scientific Linux 7.0 GNOME

It has been a while since I have done a review (almost 3 months, in fact). It has been significantly longer since I have looked at Scientific Linux (over 3 years, in fact). Given that, I figured it might be worthwhile to make this review about Scientific Linux 7.0. I'm just glad that I did it before the time elapsed for something else to come up (around 3 minutes, in fact — OK, I just made that one up to match the other statements). Read more

Free software hacker on open source telemetry project for OpenStack

Julien Danjou is a free software hacker almost all of the time. At his day job, he hacks on OpenStack for eNovance. And, in his free time, he hacks on free software projects like Debian, Hy, and awesome. Julien has also written The Hacker's Guide to Python and given talks on OpenStack and the Ceilometer project, among other things. Prior to his talk at OpenStack Summit 2014 in Paris this year, we interviewed him about his current work and got some great insight into the work going on for the Ceilometer project, the open source telemetry project for OpenStack.
