   * Is this actually dual-core, or are CPU1/CPU3 just hyperthreaded logical processors? -- ClintonEbadi

This page collects information on the hardware that we have installed or plan to install as part of HCoop infrastructure.

Use: fileserver, database server, email server, host for all services that don't involve dynamic content provided by non-admins.


Use: dynamic web content, services that involve running arbitrary code from members (including custom daemons, etc.)


The StarTech Server Remote Control External KVM over IP provides access to systems that may have a degraded network. It allows us to monitor Power-On Self Test (POST), configure BIOS/CMOS, and even reinstall operating system software. It must be connected to another multiple port KVM in order to have access to more than one server.

Use: Initially, server was set up by Clinton Ebadi. It's purpose is to serve as a secondary KDC/AFS server instead of Krunk, and an email server (all email processing).

(The 1x2 GB RAM module was acquired from Newegg, and the two disks from ServerSupply. Purchases were made in Sep 2008, but ServerSupply took good 3 weeks to deliver).

  • Model: Xen VM
  • Processor:
  • RAM: 512 MB
  • Disk: 40 GB RAID
  • OS: Debian stable
  • User logins: no

Use: secondary DNS on a different subnet, all tasks requiring remote location.

abulafia: shell server

  • Processor: 1 x 900 MHz
  • RAM: 512 MB
  • Disks: 40 GB RAID 1 (2 x 40 GB 7200 RPM ATA drives)
  • Extra: 3Ware 6400 PCI ATA RAID controller

Intended use: refurbished slightly to serve as a generic shell server and the only machine where usage not strictly related to "Internet hosting" is permitted. Due to failing parts the machine was decomissioned completely and is no longer planned for reuse.

Removed from rack in December 2008 to make space needed for servicing other machines. Server wasn't able to run with current hardware, and the board determined that it would be more effective to purchase a higher-powered server to fill our rack rather than purchase parts needed to bring Xanadu into operation.

Use: was a secondary KDC and AFS server. Decomissioned after it developed problems in the hardware (as we perceived it) network stack.
