Meanwhile at the Wayback Machine…

Every blue moon I take a trip back on the Wayback Machine at the Internet Archive to look at what looked like. Looking through the information from www. on December 3, 2001, I found this information on the web server:

The HP NetServer LD Pro runs Red Hat Linux 7.0. It uses Apache with PHP and Perl as the web server. FTP services are handled by ProFTPD. The NetServer also provides primary internal dynamic DNS services with BIND 9. Live Web Cam services are procided by RealServer 8. Of course, it is constantly updated with security patches!

The NetServer was configured with:

  • Intel Pentium Pro 180 MHz CPU
  • 96 MB ECC RAM
  • One fixed 9 GB Ultra SCSI disk
  • Two hot swap 9 GB Ultra SCSI disks
  • Intel EtherExpress Pro/100 Plus network adaptor is now hosted out of a co-lo in Montreal, Quebec now but there still is an internal server. It has been upgraded a little bit from 2001…

HP Proliant DL360 G7 configured with:

  • Intel Xeon X5670  2.93Ghz 6-core CPU
  • 72 GB RAM
  • 3 x 300GB 10K SAS disks
  • P410 Raid controller
  • Dual Power Supplies
  • VMware ESXi 6.0
  • Storage on a Qnap NAS using NFS

Just a little faster, little more storage and much, much smaller and lighter….
