## GodBox V3

So, for a long time, I have been thinking about GodBoxV3, the replacement to GodBoxV2. And when planning this, i had some ideas of what it should be:

* Minimum of 2x16 cores (double godboxv2)
* About the same RAM, if not more

## Updates to BGP Stuff, including IPv6

I lost one VPS in London, but replaced it with a new one from [HostUS](https://my.hostus.us/aff.php?aff=2152). I still use [Vultr](https://www.vultr.com/?ref=6925432), [Packet](https://geni.us/fEXzBRp) and [VServer.Site](https://geni.us/Z8JgBxn) as providers too. I am also adding more and more IPv6 stuff too... There is a [post on AS204994 explaining a lot of this](https://as204994.net/post/quick-overview/).

## New NAS and more storage!

New NAS got purchased: [QNAP TS-932X](https://geni.us/1BdBXv). I have 5X8TB spinny disks (shucked from 5 [WD My Book 8TBs](https://geni.us/joHV)) + 4 X [500GB WD Blue SSDs](https://geni.us/QuaR6t0).

## New Servers and cooling updates

Moved lots of stuff around the room... Servers run cooler, and less noisy! happy days! I also got my hands on a very nice looking [Sun Server X3-2](https://geni.us/Ri5Vs). Its a Dual Xeon E5 (currently got quad cores, going to upgrade it to 8 cores) and i think its got 16GB ram and 4x300GB SAS Disks. It also has 4X10Gb nics! ESXi will probably go on here!

## VMWare in the house

Up till reciently, I ran [Hyper-V](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyper-V) all round. Its still on GodBox V2 and V3 (v1 has a HDD issue, so its off...), but the main VM hosts (the C6100's) are being migrated to [VMWare ESXi](https://geni.us/tDBSw8z)... Why? Its a learning excersize... We see how it goes...
