Server Upgrade

date: 2022-07-01

We decided to upgrade our peertube server, primarily so that it can transcode videos faster. It served them just fine, but the transcoding process was taking too long.

RetroEdgeTech Peertube server

It is now running on an HP EliteDesk 800 G1 mini with an Intel i7-4785T processor. It's four cores and eight threads should do a lot better than the two cores, two threads of the previous machine's AMD GX-217GA

Also upgraded from a 128GB SSD to a 500GB SSD while we were at it, so I don't have to do it later. I'm hoping that we'll upload over 100GB of videos over the next year.
