…when you can get an 8-core webserver for $300/month.
(the “Dual Xeon 5335 - SATA” from The Planet)
One of those currently serves a large portion of Tumblr’s database requests (although we got the SAS disks and more RAM). The CPU power this comes with is ridiculous.
I think the sale ends today, then the price goes back to the regular $400, which is still a ridiculously good deal.
