Department installs replacement server computers (Expired)

Over the summer, the Department of Computer Science installed replacement Venus and Mercury server computers.

Venus:

The new version of Venus, which is used by faculty, staff, and grad students, is a new Dell R510 server.  For the technically minded, it is has Dual Xeon X5570 2.93GHz, Quad core, 64-bit, Hyperthreaded CPUs; 16GB Memory - 32GB Virtual memory; and a 1.5TB Disk.  The operating system is Linux - Scientific Linux (a whiteboxed version of
RedHat Enterprise Linux).  For more details, see

Mercury:

The new version of Mercury, which is an infrastructure machine that supports our website and email, is actually two somewhat older machines operating in a software mirror configuration (for reliability).  Each machine is a Dell PowerEdge R200, with dual Xeon X3220 (2.4Ghz, 64-bit, Hyperthreaded) CPUs, 8GB memory, and dual 500GB SATA drives.  They are running the same Linux version as Venus.
