• For all tech-nerds this post may be interesting, we promised, to communicate almost everything as open as we could.

    In this post we will talk about our Servers, their Hardware, their Location, or even some crazy storys about them.

    As some of you may or may not knew, we are running mostly of our own hardware, meaning unlike most other services, we are owning the server itself, of course it means higher costs, if for example a server just quits. We have had some faliures during our last months, wich our systems really prove their realibility on.

    The one faliure where we really had to switch some parts, was when a power-supply failed on us, and as our servers use properitary mainboards, we had to wait almost 3 days for a new one to ship, but this server`s load was simply transfered to the other ones.

    Some of our services also run on webhostings, and/or vps for backup or cheaper load-balancing.

    Server 1 :
    This is our primary server where most incoming HTTP traffic will be send on. It probaly is also is the server you are currently reading this post on.
    It is allready aged, and will re replaced with a stronger one, once the load is higher. This will be a very simple process. This server is running on older hardware, as it wont face as much load as our game servers.

    Specs :

    CPU : Intel Xeon E3-1225v2
    RAM : 64GB, 4 dedicated to php.
    HDD : WD RED 10TB

    Connection : 1000 Mbit/s

    Server 2 :
    This is where most of our game-server magic happens, it also serves as load balancer and will spread load from server 3-4.
    Specs :
    CPU : Intel Xeon E5-2630v4

    RAM : 64GB, 16gb dedicated to php.
    HDD/SSD : Corsair Neutron NX500, 400GB nvme SSD.

    Connection : 1000 Mbit/s
    Special Hardware : Sattleite Reciever, PFsense hardware firewall.
    Once this load is not enough anymore, we will upgrade basicly every spec to its double.

    Server 3 :
    CPU : 2x Intel Xeon E5-2640v1
    RAM : 48GB, another 256gb are currently in shipping, as one Module failed lately.
    HDD / SSD : 1TB Hitachi HDD; 256gb SSD

    Connection : 400Mbit/s
    Special Hardware : Fully Watercooled, RX480GPU, Powersupply currently glued into its case, more on this on a later point :whistling:.....

    Server 4
    CPU :Intel Xeon E5-2678v3
    RAM : 32GB
    HDD/SSD : 1tb HDD, 256gb sas.

    Connection : 1000Mbit/s
    Special Hardware : Quadro P5000

    Server 5 :
    Not yet active eta march 2020
    CPU : Intel Xeon W3235
    RAM : 32GB
    HDD/SSD : 2TBhdd / 256gb sas
    Connection 1000Mbit/s down & 400up
    Special Hardware : RTX6000 GPU
    Yes it will be hugely overkill, but that is one plus side of self-hosting :) '
    Current state : In Testing :P
