Pianeta

host

pianeta means planet in portuguese (i'm currently learning portuguese). it hosts vservers:

polaris              dns
spica                mail
mintaka              apt-cacher
betelgeuse           puppetmaster
bellatrix            primary vserver
aldebaran                                      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aldebaran
arcturus                                       http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arcturus

the vservers are named after some of the brightest stars in the sky: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_most_luminous_stars

some of these services are available for use by other machines in the colo.

security

security is taken seriously. the vservers sit on top of two layers of encryption and require two separate sysadmins to mount different parts. this means there may be a delay in restoring services in the unlikely case of an unpredicted interruption.

shared services

several services are available to be shared within the colo. these are:

  • dns caching service.
  • apt-cacher service

vservers

the vservers are set up as follows:

polaris

DNS caching nameserver, running DJBDNS according to http://cr.yp.to/djbdns/run-cache-x.html

spica

mailserver, running exim4

mintaka

apt-cacher: you can connect to this by including the following in your /etc/apt/sources.list:

deb http://mintaka.redetoile.net/debian [distro] [branch(es)] # stock debian
deb-src http://mintaka.redetoile.net/debian [distro] [branch(es)] # stock debian source
