Ram Disk Array? Eve Online Just Got one!

By | November 1, 2005

Alright so I don’t currently have the use of the funding to get something like this but holy smokes it would be cool. I’ve always wondered what kind of hardware setup MMORPGs ran (Obviously load balanced servers but I’m talking specifics). Well Eve Online says on their main site that they just got one of these installed to handle their database. The throughput on this thing must be beyond excessive but I bet they can use the capacity with 17,000+ concurrent users during peak times. Now just imagine what World of Warcraft must have with 4 million subscibers!
