Riseup / MFPL shared colo

  • Term: September 30, 2009. That's the end of our contract with Bandcon - after which we will want to jointly negotiate a new contract with them.

  • Current Capacity
    • Riseup
      • nene
      • finch
    • MFPL
      • axiom
      • naomi
      • ottorene
      • pianeta
      • pietri
      • roy (turned off)
      • chomsky (turned off)
    • Shared
      • paley (terminal server)
  • Future growth - we seem to be at current electrical capacity. Our contract allows us to add a new 20 Amp circuit for an additional $360, something we may want to consider adding now. MFPL will need to add one or two more servers prior to September 30, 2009 and Riseup may also need to add new servers
  • Shared Resources
    • Currently Shared resources - I'm purposefully mixing all tech/non-tech resources together:
      • Cabinet/bandwidth/electricity ($860/month)
      • Switch (it was donated to MFPL)
      • Terminal server (MFPL purchased $449)
      • PDU (MFPL purchaesd $140)
      • 100xrj45 ends (riseup: $25.55)
      • cable crimper (riseup: $42.55)
      • 500' cat-5e cable (riseup: $59.61)
      • Bill paying/admin overhead (mfpl, 7%, $60.20)
      • Legal authority (we signed the current contract, so this falls with us)
      • Technical Authority (we've gotten a badge for you - I'm not sure what this means in terms of your ability to call in tech issues)
    • Future shared resources
      • Onsite backup server(s). We currently have one installed in XO - RAID5 with 3 1 TB disks (just under 2 TB total, most currently available).
      • Munin (MFPL has munin server in colo run by gdm)
      • Apt proxy server (apt-cacher-ng in the XO colo, also run by gdm)
      • Network monitoring

  • Future projects
    • Move PDU unit (#1860)
    • Measure electrical usage by computer
    • Add 2 circuit
