Donate Hardware to SETI@home

Along with financial contributions, we are also looking for specific hardware donations. Following is a list of items we hope to obtain in the near future.

(Last updated: December 10, 2008)

1Near Time Persistency Checker compute server:
At least eight 64 bit CPU cores (8 single core, 4 dual core or 2 quad core)
32-64GB RAM
At least 2 root drives, >500GB disk space total
(Current situation: We do not have any server slated for this purpose)
2Web servers (for public facing sites):
At least dual 32 bit CPUs (with either dual core or hyper threading)
8GB RAM (more is always better) At least 2 root drives of any modern size
(Current situation: we have one web server - a single point of failure - so more is always better)
 SATA drives:
We use SATA drives almost excluseively at this point for shipping data to/from Arecibo and storing all our workunits/results/databases locally. We seem to always be in need of upgrades and spares. We prefer Seagate brand, 750GB or larger. (Current situation: have some - more is always better)

If you have any interest in making such a donation, please send questions/comments to:
