I’m in the mood to do some hardware upgrades this weekend. I have some extra spare parts that I’m going to shuffle around.
I’m going to increase the memory of my development box to 32GB. With all of the instances of Visual Studio that I keep open, and the long and memory hungry build process, I figured it was about due. I’m also going to upgrade the old SSD, which is not very big, to a larger one. I’ll also be adding a second SSD, which will be used to hold all of the current development files. This should provide some pretty nice performance!
I’m also going to add an SSD to both of the database servers. The old drives will become the backup drives. Note that the database is also backed up onto my offsite cloud as well. The SSD should really help the speed of these systems!
