Kingston Technology Gives Futurelooks a Big Upgrade

This is definitely one of those times where the saying "If you ask for it, you just might get it" totally applies and then some. In this case, we asked for a small RAM upgrade to one of Futurelooks' servers (Futurelooks Apache One to be exact). The server has been acting all shades of weird over the last few weeks as traffic has been climbing steadily. After a while it became apparent that the problems were caused by not having enough RAM.

I gave our friends at Kingston Technology a shout to see if they could help us out. I totally expected to pay for the RAM since I would be getting some anyway. I was just hopping for a deal and a couple more gigabytes to keep the machine from dying. Our man over there, Dave, has always offered to help us out with whatever we needed. We've just never needed anything aside from the usual review products that we check out on occasion. Instead of giving us what we needed, he went above and beyond and made sure we'd never need RAM again...

So that means we're going from a measly 2GB of ECC DDR2 to a whopping 12GB's of ECC DDR2 RAM! Want to see what 12GB's of RAM looks like going into our DELL PowerEdge 1850 Server? Check out the video below...

Wayne Au from Auphan Software gave me a hand with the upgrade. Despite the fact that he's successful and busy as hell, he still took the time to help me out with the servers (at 1AM in the morning no less) so I'm really thankful for his generosity. His company builds some of the best restaurant software in the biz (way better than that expensive Squirrel or shady Profitek stuff). That's why his company has been doing extremely well, converting some huge chains over to his system including Blenz Coffee.

Wayne's a real standup guy and he only hires the best so if you're looking for a kick ass POS system for your restaurant, cafe or major restaurant chain and you want something that saves you time and money and stays running 24/7, make sure you check out his company. Also, if you're looking for some exceptional quality RAM, you have to give Kingston Technology a ring or just find it at your favourite store because it's everywhere. It's definitely good stuff and it wouldn't be in our mission critical servers if it wasn't. Big thanks to Dave at Kingston for the hook up once again. You guys rock!
