Description

There were rumours flying around that the SPC had some extra cash left over at the end of the 2006/2007 academic year, and Redbrick hadn't splashed out on a major new purchase in a long time. Also, we were in desperate need of more storage space, with gallery.redbrick eating up space on Deathray like nobody's business. So we decided to purchase a machine with, as Eoghan (atlas) described it, "an assload of storage". So Eoghan sourced the machine from Encom, we applied for a grant, we got the grant (whee!), and it now sits happily in the server room.

In February 2010 it became the host machine for Redbrick's new DAS, Worf, connected via a Dell PERC 6/E RAID controller.

Services

  • Serves /home and /webtree over NFS.
  • Primary login machine.
