This page will serve as a dumping ground for ideas about what we can do with titanic if/when it is hosted.

Purpose

Super-awesome hardcore dev server

Possible services

  • More specialist, customized databases (PostGreSQL as an alternative to MySQL on cube)
  • Distributed version control?
  • Package mirrors?

Services not related to software dev should be kept to a minimum. However, we currently don't have failover for DNS or LDAP inside College, so:

  • Backup LDAP server
  • Slave authoritative DNS server


Software installed

  • all the compilers
  • all the interpreters
  •  ???

As storage will be limited, some easy-peasy means of mounting spoon/cube homedirs will be needed.

Upgrades needed

* We're not going to be big on storage, so it's probably a particularly expensive waste of money to buy more SCSIs.
