Today ( Friday 27th July ) is sysadmin day, and we at Majestic would like to say thanks to our Systems Manager, Chris, and the specialists at our datacenters for the ongoing work that keeps our massive world wide crawl effort operational, and our web based services available.
It has been said that a picture is worth a thousand words, so Majestic would like to present a picture taken at one of the routine maintenance visits to the server farm, with the upgrade of memory in some of the servers. The chips below represent around 2TB of memory – we will leave it to you to figure out how many networked Apple II microcomputers would be required to fulfil that sort of capacity.
I'm the Chief cat herder and hirer for our development team. I work with Dixon and Alex to contribute to the design and oversee the development of software which is developed by our talented team of software engineers.
