Through the fine work of the GPU Users Group, Terabit Systems has generously donated both a 1Gbit and a 10Gbit ethernet switch to our group. The 1Gbit switch will be a substantial upgrade to our server room. The 10Gbit switch will become part of a very high speed SETI spectrometer to be deployed at the Greenbank Telescope.

Jeff, thanks for the news!

A big *Thank you!* to the GPU Users Group and Terabit Systems!


Does this mean that the internet connection between the SETI@home server room and us members will be upgraded soon from the current 100 Mbits/sec to 1 Gbit/sec?

Indeed, a great 'Huzzah' to the GPU group. Infrastructure like this makes a huge difference.

I'd thank 'em by doing business with them, but I have no idea what I'd do with a big-#@% switch like that if I had it.

No, it won't directly affect download speeds because everyone will still be limited to the 100Mbit switch up the hill.
