Here are pics of our new server room and the rack of equipment that provides Radio80s.NET. This equipment also provides our parent company, Actrix Networks, with certain network and hosting features. Note that we are about to embark on a clustering project that will see the two 6400R machines clustered together sharing a NAS storage device.
