Fixing My $10,000 Mistake - Whonnock 3 Deployment


Check out Storyblocks at
Back in Early 2020, we tried to deploy a new version of our all NVMe video editing server dubbed "New Whonnock". It was a complete disaster due to what appeared to be a design flaw with the storage drives we purchased for it. This time around, we've built a new PCIe Gen 4 NVMe server from the ground up with the help of Liqid, Sabrent, Micron, AMD,, and Infinite Cables - let's just hope it actually works this time.

  • Rannon
    Rannon2 หลายเดือนก่อน

    What's the reason (except for backwards compatibility) that new server stuff still uses (only/mostly only?) VGA? Less bandwidth? More reliable? I mean, shouldn't it get harder and harder to get new screens with VGA? And if there are still new ones getting made (or older one's still getting manufactured) aren't they (the screens) soon (unless it's already been that way for a while) going to just get more expensive while being worse than anything you can get for e.g. 50 bucks (except maybe bandwidth wise)?

    I thought SSDs wear very close to one another due to wear leveling, so when the first SSD fails the others will probably start failing soon after. Backups will not help with uptime then!

    Nightmare will come when you tried to replace one faulty SSD, then you'll realize the whole server need to shut down before you can unplug the card and actually change it. Oh, the card can't even locate the faulty SSD. Be warned.

    In one of your previous video, you were using U.2 SSDs which makes the above problem non-existent.

    Then everyone who works in any kind of enterprise support is just like, "oh, those. Neat." I've been working around 25/100Gb switches for quite a while now. Usually the local side is still 25Gb, since it's been difficult to squeeze multiple 100Gb ports into PCIe 3.0, but still.

    You carelessly flailing multi-thousand-dollar components around, and running at full speed with a multi-tens-of-thousands-of-dollars server is not funny, it's not entertaining, it's only cringey. Do you really love so much to break thousands of dollars worth of electronics just to have to spend that much money again to get replacements? Are you completely incapable of grasping the concept of handling expensive parts carefully and safely? Be grateful that _this_ time nothing dropped on the floor. But when you keep acting like this, something eventually will. But I suppose you have the money to waste.
