Debian has recently added another machine to its computing
resources. The system is an UltraSPARC 60 with dual 360Mhz CPU's
and 512Megs of RAM. It was donated by Sun Microsystems (http://www.sun.com/). To add to the
system, Sun also donated a Netra st A1000 Telecom Class storage
array. The array contains eight 9gig 10k RPM drives, for a total of
72gigs of raw capacity. The storage unit, configured as a RAID 5
system, will serve as Debian's new primary internal archive server.
IntraServer (http://www.intraserver.com/) also
assisted in getting this system operational by donating the PCI
Differential UltraWide SCSI Controller that the array is attached
The system is currently running Debian's frozen SPARC GNU/Linux
distribution, potato (aka, Debian 2.2), utilizing a 2.2.15-pre11
SMP kernel. The machine is being hosted at VisiNet , a Winstar
owned ISP (http://www.winstar.com/).
Debian wishes to thank all of the contributors of the system and
hosting site as well as the developers who invested time and effort
into testing and configuring the system for Debian's network. Thank
The Debian project is an organization of many users who volunteer
their time and effort. Its tasks include maintaining and updating
Debian GNU/Linux which is a free distribution of the GNU/Linux
operating system, and the development of the Debian GNU/Hurd
