[SAC] [support.osuosl.org #24234] OSGeo4 VM revamp Plan

Just wanted to make sure everyone saw this.

1. Next step is finalize the quote for new hardware & buy
2. Get Astrodog's machine shipped (possibly after the codehaus rescue


-------- Forwarded Message --------

So we discussed this on IRC a few times since the last update on this

Here's the current plan I brought to the growth planning team:

Plan A
0. OSL sets aside 2U of space for OSGeo in a new rack.
1. OSGeo buys and ships 1U replacement hardware to the OSL to replace osgeo4
2. OSL sets up hardware in reserved space
3. (future) OSGeo buys and ships a second 1U server to replace osgeo3.
4. OSGeo migrates services on osgeo4 to new equipment.
5. OSL decomissions osgeo3/4

It looks like you've also requested another 2U of equipment, one for
rackmount mac minis and another for a BSD build server. We've been
decommissioning a lot of equipment lately, so we're approving the full
4U request.

We're looking at migrating Supercell from Ganeti to Openstack, so we're
reluctant add new clients to the Ganeti cluster. But when that's
prepared, you're welcome to join it.

When you're ready to ship things, let us know so we can start prepping
on our end. Our shipping address can be found at http://osuosl.org/contact.
