I'm confused here, you want to "transport via disk"? Why would anyone want to "transport" anything with the options the internet provides? Obviously SETI has access to the internet. Didn't "disks" go by way of the Dodo birds? Surely they have internet access in West Virginia and a place like the Green Bank Observatory would have at least a T1 line as a minimum.


They don't use the internet because of the vast amounts of data being moved - we are talking several TB per day - a T1 wouldn't cope, nor would the 100MB available to the Space Lab where S@H lives.

Good for you. I could even do it in French, Gderman or my own language Dutch. But I won't...... :)

Here is another answer which may have worked just as well. Use Google translate from Spanish to English. Duh. It is very unlikely if we find life on another planet we will be able to communicate in english. Time to broaden your mind.

What size and what type of hard drive do you need (EIDE, Serial ATA, SCSI, Serial Attached SCSI, Fiber, SATA 1 2 3,etc.).

For our Hydrogen Array we need specifically http://www.compsource.com/pn/0F12115/Hitachi_196/Deskstar-7k3000-Hds723020bla642-Hard-Drive/ currently QTY 15 of these.

For general transport drives we need either 2 or 3TB SATA drives, preferably 64MB 7200RPM drives. For example:

2TB http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148834

3TB http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148844

We're always looking for other drives for other roles as well such as when we build servers, replace old server drives, workstation building and so forth, but for the most part the above drives I've linked are always in demand somewhere in the Lab.

If you have any questions about donating hardware please feel free to contact me at brad@gpuug.org anytime. Thanks!

Thankfully you use the best hard drives made, and not using garbage Seagate. WDC cheaps out and makes it difficult to do RAID as they implement a TLER (or lack of) on their black drives, and comparing to Hitachi, Hitachi is still better quality. Eight years, I still have yet to have a Hitachi drive fail on me. I have eight 2TB Hitachi drives chugging away at home on my AMCC controller, and at $160 a piece, that was a bit of coin I had to sacrifice to retain all my data. Newegg may not have many Hitachi's available, but NCIX does. I wouldn't go 3TB or 4tb yet as the cost per GB goes up drastically over the traditional and more compatible 2TB capacities, unless you want to save on electricity costs or have a limited space for installation. I wish I knew what Hitachi is doing as FTC ruled that WDC sell Hitachi to Fujitsu, who currently doesn't sell desktop drives. So much competition with solid state these days, it wouldn't surprise me that WDC buys up all the magnetic data storage companies soon, only to go bust. Hitachi has the power to take over the hard drive market a year ago, shame to see them attempt to bail out.

I have many Seagate hard drives in the 1tb or 1.5TB capacities which I would be willing to donate, one of which randomly locks up depending where you read data and the others with numerous bad sectors and such which I no longer trust using. Gave up on them as Seagate kept sending me melons for the ones I sent them, though maybe if you use them intermittently, they may be ok. 4.5TB in total I would donate, if you are willing to chance it, or if you are willing to deal with Seagate with warranty.

You guys should be able to e-mail me if you want to take up my offer, as I used it to log on just now.

There's a (now old) saying in the data business:

Nothing beats the bandwidth of a station wagon full of DVDs*.

* or mag tapes, or hard drives, or memory cards, or ...

We've had some bad luck with Seagate recently, mostly with dead on arrival drives and likely due to the recent flooding that affected the entire hard drive industry. The good news is Seagate has been very good with their RMA process on replacing faulty drives.

I'll ask and see if they could use your drives. Thanks for the interest!

Also thanks very much to everyone who contributed to our fundraisers. We've managed to finish both fundraisers over the weekend which is outstanding.

If you're interested in donating any equipment to SETI at Home, please feel free to email me anytime at the address below.

I wouldn't bother- anything that's considered even possibly suspect just isn't worth dealing with.

Sir,
I have several hard drives I will gladly give to you as I was just going to toss them. At least this way they go to a good cause. All totaled it might be a TB, not sure. All SATA I believe might have 1 IDE. Send an address and they are yours.
Dave.

40TiB was just an example to show how shipping hard drives to move mass amounts of data is more affordable and faster in some cases than using an internet connection. The 40TB number is the total storage space of all the hard drives they are buying for the project.

If you would like to donate hardware, it has been stated by Slavac in post 1292488 to contact him and he will arrange the donation.

Sir, I think that they're deliberately doing that to show how unintelligent they are! They've already proven that without question. I guess that those individuals are not taking SETI@Home seriously enough. If they're not, they need to go somewhere else. Only serious people need Apply. Raymond SPANISH TRANSLATION: "Señor, creo que están haciendo que deliberadamente para mostrar como poco inteligentes que son! Ya han demostrado que sin lugar a dudas. Supongo que esas personas no están tomando SETI @ Home suficientemente en serio. Si no lo son, tienen que ir a otro lugar. Sólo gente seria necesario aplicar. Ramon"
