Office of Information Technology (OIT) Managed Services and Consulting Group
The University of Colorado at Boulder OIT Managed Services and Consulting team manages the servers that host the CYE Image Collection website. Its members include Jake Engleman, Jason Hill, Jesse Caldwell, and Orrie Gartner. The website accesses its images and data from the CYE's LUNA Insight image database.
The Insight database's "active" server is a Dell R510 system running RedHat Enterprise Linux 5. It is an x86-64 architecture with dual quad-core E5640 Xeon processors running at 2.66GHz each with 24GB of memory and nearly 3TB of storage in a RAID-5 configuration.
The video streaming server is a Dell 2950 system running RedHat Enterprise Linux 5. It is an x86-64 architecture with dual quad-core Xeon E5420 processors running at 2.5GHz each with 8GB of memory and nearly 4.5TB of storage in a RAID-5 configuration.
The third server is used to back-up the live LUNA Insight database and its JPEG 2000 derivative images, as well as the 20MB master TIFF image files. It also backs up the video streaming system. This server is a Dell 2950 system running RedHat Enterprise Linux 5. It is an x86-64 architecture with a single quad-core E5430 processor running at 2.67GHz with 2GB of RAM and 2.5TB of storage in a RAID-5 configuration. The backups are being done with rdiff-backup and are also periodically written to tape via an external LTO-3 tape drive attached to the server.
