Hi list,

I know everybody will be laughing about it but check this out ;)


I know 5 nodes won't be enough but they are really cheap. It's just a 
crazy idea but I was surprised how fast my TYPO3-xbox-debian-linux was 
(although it has only 64MB Ram!, 733MHz CPU, 100Mbit Network, 8-10GB 
HDD). I used one xbox for developing TYPO3-stuff and it run and run and....

My list of the day:
- 12 to 24 xboxes in one big cluster (only an optimized apache, php, 
- one NAS (Network Attached Storage)
(- failover NAS)
- one huge DB-server (Master, could be your current webserver)
- one huge DB-server (Slave)
- your current load balancer solution

With that configuration you can render some OOdocs into pdf, too.
But the best of it: It costs you nothing (just space and energy)! Just 
collect some old xboxes and set it up.

I donate my old xbox! ;)
