Not the best of quality pics, but I will post someting better in coming days. At left is a Dell PowerEdge 2900 III configured as a New VS, with 8 processor cores, running 7 New VS instances. Left to right are DVD/CD drive, RD1000 removable disk bay and cartridge, DDS-3 4mm tape drive to restore customer volumes, then the 8-drive hot-swap bays. There are three 73 GB drives and 5 300 GB drives configured into a 73 GB RAID1 with hot spare and a 900 GB RAID5 with hot spare.

If all seven instances are configured to run at the highest performance tier, each is equivalent to 2.4 times a VS18950 and can support up to about 500 Lightspeed users or about 1,000 non-LS users. The instances can be clustered using virtual RSF for file sharing and cross-cluster logon. This system has them networked by WSN for file transfer and RLOGON. The total potential processing power in this box is equivalent to about 17 VS18950 systems.

Atop the Poweredge is a separate Dell PowerVault containing a DAT72 4mm tape drive. The Linux console screen shows the console windows, one for each of the seven New VS instances.

The system has fully mirrored main memory, RAID disk storage, and dual hot-swap power supplies. This is presently the most powerful VS that has ever existed on Planet Earth.
