Presumably a contraction from "brand spanking new" a phrase normal
& common in England when I grew up there. I think "brand spanking
new server" might also leave nationals of some other international
english variant speaking countries (eg USA) & non native speakers
puzzled. "Spanking server" will set some grinning salaciously ;-)
"Shiney/super new" or similar might be more internationaly understandable :-)
