Web Server

We have located a company we really like, that can certainly help us get started with our white gloved, state of the art, personalized and professional web hosting service. A few quick calculations before I head out to get some sunshine, possibly walk or work, relax and think, focus and regroup. The 4 x 1.92 TB SATA SSD drives, and lets assume for a second, that these are formated numbers, should yield 3.84 TB of storage space when placed in the RAID 10 configuration. With the RAID 10 we will get striping and mirroring, an excellent combination for both speed and redundancy, then we can throw in another back up drive also, and even do off site backups but that will not be necessary because this is going in a data center.

This is a break down of our site as of today, and keep in mind it is a very large site with 43 pages, 83 posts, and almost 1000 images: PHP Version: 7.3.17 64 Bit OS, Memory: Total: 256M Used: 35.50 MB, Database: 14.64 MB, Entire Site: 3.95 GB, Contentswp-content: 2.68 GB, plugins: 20.45 MB, themes: 8.95 MB, uploads: 2.65 GB. If we take the entire size of R.E. White Consulting Dot Com, 3.95 GB, and we divide 3.84 TB / 3.95 GB we get 974 possible accounts or websites, that is how many of our sites will fit on the RAID 10 drive configuration below. We currently pay about $20.00 a month for web hosting (we get 60 Gigs but have never even come close to using them), so $20.00 x 974 = $19,480.00 a month. As you can see, web hosting has a great potential for profit, but that is not the only reason we are expanding our IT division into it, it goes much much deeper than that.

Having our own web server will allow us to do many things, even offering online storage for all of our team members and clients. If you, and or your small office home office business, or your large corporation require rack space, and or cabinet space, we will be able to provide that as well, because one of our goals is to rent the entire cage inside the data centers. Cages lease for anywhere between $4,000.00 to probably $10,000.00 a month, but you can get a massive amount of data inside a whole cage trust me. In the future we want our own data center, to build out a space that we can call home, and rent out accounts, virtual private servers, dedicated servers, managed dedicated servers, cloud servers, 1/4 and 1/2 and whole racks (42Us), and whole cages.

Dell PowerEdge C6220 Gen 2, 4 Node 24x SFF 2U Server = $2,507.00 as configured below. Up to 4 nodes / servers can be installed in this 2U cabinet. We might need a good firewall and also some software but much of what we will be utilizing is open source and free. Also, there is the cost of bandwidth and then the rack space, in this case about $100.00 to $150.00 a month for 2Us. There you have it for now folks, a quick glance into my mind, the mind of Marc White, and what is going on in there right this second, despite how horribly many people treat me. You can’t stop this business or company or God, no way, no matter how much you try to hurt us or harass us or neglect us or bully us, we always win, because of Jesus and because we have healthy boundaries and lots of cash, hahaha!!!
