Just because I have been a good DBA in 2010, Santa Claus is bringing me 2 new x2-2 for christmas :)

It seems that our new 2 x2-2 boxes will arrive before the end of this year. We have already started to plan our new migration process from the existing v2 full rack sas machine into the newly comming x2-2 high performance systems. This time we will deal will 16 nodes. Migration will be quite simple as taking a backup and restoring it. And taking an incremental backup and restoring it , until we had a read only window to direct our etls. But we do not like easy projects 🙂 So to get things complicated we are planning to change the place of our datacenter. It’s good news for me because I will have more time to play with this new toy before it becomes production.
If you have anything in mind to test or try on x2-2 machine, just write your comments and we will plan the stress tests together.
