comment MySQL on udp port
A database really doesn't suit UDP very well. What happens if you have packet loss? If packets arrive out of order? Your data will be jumbled and non-retransmissable. Bad idea.

comment How much RAM is enough RAM where you want it to be ECC?
fwiw anecdotally I have an x99 workstation with an i7-5820K and 64GB of non-ECC DDR4 which I use extensively, all day, with a heap of virtual machines loaded all day, and have had no issues at all.

comment How many virtual machines are hosted on a server?
The M910 was a kickass workhorse blade in its day, but the fact is that it's 5 years old. 128GB is certainly a decent amount of RAM, but the last servers I worked with that gen of processor had 192GB. So I don't doubt you can get plenty of work done on the server, but you will almost certainly get better performance out of a new R730.

comment Do I have to have the IP address of a server to initiate a DMCA takedown if the server is behind a service like Cloudflare?
Whilst this is the correct answer, I've been disappointed in cloudflare's responses to abuse requests that I've submitted to them, so I hope that Wayne was able to get what he wanted from them.

comment upgrading to blades from regular server
Don't forget that this question is 5 years old. Back then blades were a different beast to what they are today.
