Servers Free For The Interested

I have been migrating to the ubiquitous Amazon cloud and no longer have a need for some equipment.  Figured I would offer it to the list prior to dropping it at Bet Buy for recycling.

 - a pair of 1U Dell P1550 servers, each has Dual 1GHZ P3 with (I believe) 2048MB of memory.  Servers are SCSI and each has 3 drives (each 18GB)  installed with RAID.  I used to have Centos installed on them.  If you ever wanted to explore the joys of RAID configuration, this is your chance.  I also have 1 set of Server Rails.

- 8 SCSI cards from a variety of mfgs

- extra 18GB SCSI drive

- I DOD wiped one of the servers, the other wont boot but otherwise comes up fine.

I really don't want to separate the stuff, so email only if you want it all.  I live in shoreview and can meet at any coffee shop in the area.

mint 12 MGSE might align with what you're looking for (tho i'm still stuck on my "classic" custom system.twmrc..)

Yeah, I do.  Cut my teeth on SGI.  Back in the day I was a student
worker at college for the Unix admin and we setup about 2 dozen O2's
and other SGI's, Indigo's and Indy's for CSCI and Physics.  I am
actually now the sys admin there and we still have two of these O2's
in the physics department.  Physics is always the last to cling to old
computer stuff.  :)  They were nifty boxes.  My first job out of
college was actually for a place doing development on SGI's, had one
of the big servers, an Origin.  I *might* have some IRIX cd's laying
around somewhere if you're interested.

Those were the days...

Happy new year,

Josh

Re: SGI O2 Was: Free stuff

I started my sysadmin career on Irix as well... In it's time, there was not much else which could touch it for
large filesystems and fast IO.

I wish I'd had a way to keep (and I mean actually power and maintain) the Origin 2k I started with.... But who
can fit something the size of a clothes washer and requires 2x240v to power.

Re: Off-site backup for Linux home users

I've been using CrashPlan for a week now and I love it. Much faster, and it's very easy to use + affordable. I can still back up the NAS from my desktop, which isn't the most ideal but the ease of use makes it worth it.

Thank you all for your suggestions!

Yet another vote for CrashPlan here. I backup to my computers to my own storage server as well as CrashPlan's cloud. I've setup most of my family to backup to my storage server via CrashPlan as well. One of the many nice features of CrashPlan is you can use it to backup any storage device attached to your computer, including USB and FireWire hard drives. You aren't limited to internal drives only like you are with Carbonite and their unlimited storage option is really unlimited (looking at you Mozy.)
