Mar. 25, 2012 Update

Hello Everyone:

Here's an update on what we're working on at the moment.

1. SETI at Home has requested two Shuttle Workstations for their office.  We purchased one shuttle with preexisting funds in our account and finalized a fundraiser on 03/23/2012 for the remaining shuttle.  At the time of this post one shuttle has been delivered to SETI at Home while the other was ordered on 03/23/2012.  You can track the progress of these purchases by visiting www.gpuug.org/purchases.

2. We are conducting a fundraiser for 10 additional JBOD hotswap hard drives.  These hard drives will double as data transport drives and in the event that a JBOD drive fails, will be available to keep uptime at a maximum.  If you would like to donate to this project, please visit www.gpuug.org/catalog.  Please note that you can donate either funds or the hard drives themselves by visiting the aforementioned link.

3. Both servers and the JBOD our donors provided SETI at Home have been placed in the SETI server racks.  GeorgeM has been pressed into service with PaddyM to follow soon thereafter.  To read more on this subject please visit: http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=67362.
