With thinking about organist ion of my needs in new home I am was complaining about organization of my Internet needs. After evaluation of multiple ISP and options they offer I pick one that would give me the bandwidth I want. One of the long-aimed objectives is to run my site from home.
Currently the site runs off a single HP ProLiant DL380. A pair of mirrored fast drives, 8G memory, ILO access, two FTP backups by week – very smile but it is all the is needed. The 2003 sever runs SQL 2005, Framework 2.0, IIS6, my own email server, and a few other light applications. The idea is update the server to 2008 with IIS7, activate dynamic compression, put the SQL server in second ProLiant box (dynamic compression will stress the IIS7 box too much) and dump the server to my basement on outgoing 10Meg line. Currently my server sits in datacenter with direct pipe to internet. I think the 10Meg-caped line will do perfectly fine for site like mine – it does not need a lot. So, what do I post it at the site that is audio related? Well, there is a reason.
If somebody runs ProLiant servers then you know that they are insultingly loud. Even if you put them in a separate room and close doors then the noise goes through, particularly in the shity American homes. To build sound confining sarcophagus that would allow proper cooling is too complicated. So, here is what I am thinking….
The servers generate noise at more or less constant amplitude and spectra. So, why do not read the noise and inject into the space with servers a contra- noise at opposite phase? This sort of active noise cancelation system might be fully active and to read current noise or it might be manual. Here is where I wonder- are any prebuilt active noise cancelations systems/modules are above out there. Nowadays it is a very simple task and I might correct it if necessary with Behringer DCX2496 (that is good only for this task). Did anybody played with active noise cancelation system and did anyone can point out a ready to go, tested off the shelf solution? The Cat
