8 of   SUN     x4600   8 socket Opteron, some with 2 CPUs, some with 4 CPUs, some 2.4GHz, some 2.8GHz

               1.     Sun x4600       4 * Dual 2.8GHz         16GB

               2.     Sun x4600       4 * Dual 2.8GHz         16GB

               3.     Sun x4600       2 * Dual 2.4GHz         16GB

               4.     Sun x4600       4 * Dual 2.8GHz         16GB

               5.     Sun x4600       0 * Dual 2.8GHz         0GB

Annoyingly the numbers above don't match machines in anyway, here is a list of labels on the x4600's:

unlabeled

LONAPPC001

BEIAPPC001

BANAPPC002

unreadable

LONAPPC002

LONAPPL039

BANAPPC001  <- this is the fully populated one, it's off to emfcamp!



Miscellaneous:

A large quantity of HDD (mainly 73Gb) in suitable caddies
A quantity of spare PSU
A quantity of mounting rails and cable management rails for IBM x3850M2 and x3950M2 and Sun x4600
Various network items 
A large quantity of leads
Avocent KVMIP switches with PS2 dongles (and a few USB dongles - more to follow later (september 2012) if you need more USB)


Current list of benefactors afaik

1 x Sun V445 - openbsd/sparc development (Cambridge)
1 x Sun V445 - netbsd/sparc development (?)
1 x Sun T2000 - netbsd port to niagra (?)
2 * IBM x3950M2 - Quad 2.4GHz with 128G RAM - Martin upstairs
2 * IBM x3950M2 - Quad 2.4GHz with 128G RAM - For Hackspace virtualisation project (aim to provide virtual machines for anyone who wants one)


Bids welcome for this kit

It would be really cool if Hackspace members can benefit from these servers by getting hardware to enable projects that may otherwise not happen. It would also be cool if Hackspace can benefit financially from any donations that people wish to make for any of this hardware.

I would propose a sort of 2 phase bidding process that can then be evaluated based primarily on the projects and secondarily on how much the space will earn (which will benefit all the members)

Bid here for servers.


As well as:

A serial console server and some fibre optic cables - emfcamp

and for the charity Jasper is going to in Switzerland (IOFC):

3 x PCI-E FC HBA
2 x PCI-X FC HBA
2 x FC LTO-3 Tape drives
2 x LTO-3 Tapes
2 x LTO-3 Cleaning Tapes
6 x dual port PCI-X 1Gb NIC's (might be 8)
2 x NetAPP FC disk shelves with 14 x 144Gb FC disks each
? x misc GBIC's
many  x fibre optic cables (LC <-> LC and some LC <-> SC)

N.B. They probably won't want all of it!
