Once we add a few more, it will probably be time to upgrade to 400mbps!

400mbps thats like what 40mb/s trasnfer rate, not bad but instead of four 100mbps connections one 1gbps network connection would be better.

Newgrounds only has 15severs thats nothing.
This is what i would do, buy 20 rack severs running linux for $30000 and every 3months or so add a new rack sever to the network. so just add 4 - 8 rack severs a year to the system, with a gigabit network and you'll never have a problem.

Newgrounds needs more file severs? dang that meaning there running out of space for all those crap 5mb submitions that people submit when the file size could be 500kb.

No, that's 400Mb/s transfer rate.

instead of four 100mbps connections one 1gbps network connection would be better.

The line is burstable up to 1Gbps, but there's no point in having all that extra bandwidth if it's not being used. It would be like doing a week's grocery shopping for 10 people, when the household's only got 4 people in it. In other words, a waste of money.

Newgrounds only has 15severs thats nothing.

There's more than that - there are 15 webservers. This doesn't take into account other servers on the cluster...

As for the rest of your post, I think you're kidding yourself with the pricing.

Oh I get it! You're using the servers for intensly fast Need For Speed gaming!

ahahhaha.

I noticed someone else wanted to know what NFS stood for back on page 1, and I don't think they ever got an answer. Since you're puzzled as well:

Network File System

13 webservers - that's awesome

I won't ask what the kernel is but what kind of kernel are we talking about...a big ovious one or a little subtle one?

(big kernel)
