Move backup system to zinn

Currently, our backups are running on the tower called octavia (on the virtual server called rosa). This machine is also providing the octopi that gives us serial access to all of our machines. octavia is almost at capacity with hard drive space. Octavia has three approx. 300GB disks in a RAID 5 array providing approx. 600GB of storage.

We have another server called zinn - which is a 2U machine with four front loading bays for hard drives. Given Zinn's form factor, it would make an ideal backup server.

I think we should purchase 4 1TB disks for zinn and configure them in a RAID 5 array. That would give us 3 TB of space (three times more space than we have now). Then, we should move the backup operations off of octavia/rosa and onto zinn.

If possible, we should also move the octopi to zinn or another server so we can remove octavia from the rack, thus eliminating our last operating tower from the rack.
