A Computer Lab with No Windows, Part II
With the existing 32-bit CPU (Xeon or AMD MP series), the maximum amount of RAM on the server is limited to 4GB. When a bigger--say, over 40 workstations--computer lab is needed, a 64-bit CPU such as the AMD Opteron should be used.
The performance of SCSI drive is great but the price tag is still high. I have tried SATA drive on workstations and found the performance is much better than the parallel IDE and the price is about the same. To build a cheaper and better Linux terminal server network in the future, I would like to try a dual AMD Opteron CPU with 8GB or more of RAM and a SATA drive.
If anyone has set up a terminal server supporting more than 40 users, I would like to hear his/her experience for future improvement.

DevOps represents a profound change from the way most IT departments have traditionally worked: from siloed teams and high-anxiety releases to everyone collaborating on uneventful and more frequent releases of higher-quality code. It doesn't matter how large or small an organization is, or even whether it's historically slow moving or risk averse — there are ways to adopt DevOps sanely, and get measurable results in just weeks.
