How long does it take you to deploy a new server


Daersun

Recommended Posts

From the time I unbox a new server, install windows

do

updates

patches

drivers

monitoring software install

tcadmin install

booster setup

install ips

rack it

configure the switch

configure all of my internal software

 

I'm looking at around the 4-5 hour mark.

 

Granted most of the time is sitting around twiddling my thumbs waiting for windows to finish installing/updating/rebooting.

ok rich, see I feel better. The funny thing, is its so much faster to deploy a white box then a name brand server.

 

I think the difference is external systems. We do quite a bit of external monitoring to make sure that if a server goes down I get driven nuts.

 

By the way, rich, I might be able to cut your cost on servers down a bit, why don't you give me a call :)
