In the last post where I evaluated the drives that will be installed into the server, Part 2. For today, the server gets two new drives as planned. Dismounted from the rack and looks like its gonna take the whole day to complete.

Back to the rack. Powered up so far so good. So after all goes smoothly, The drives are initiated via Megaraid storage manager. Then comes the part where I have to define a new VM datastore and migrate the Game Server OS over.

Quick benchmark show a much better performance. Solid state drives would be the best upgrade in this scenario. However, currently prices are still not at the affordable range in terms of $perGB ratio. Though it would be a viable option in the future.
