Serving the Internet since 2010
Since fall 2009 I have a dedicated G.SHDSL (since 2017 or so it's
symmetric ADSL) internet connection for my basement based datacentre which
I use to host my private endeavors including this website.
Also I do have two
Silicon Graphic Origin 2000 Supercomputers
They work fine but I don't
usually power them up especially since they take
a tremendous amount of energy
(that's for one module out of two in a rack! And there is also the MMSC
controller and a disk array per rack with their own power supplies as well) and
heat up the rooms quite fast. For playing with IRIX I have a smaller
Origin 200 as well however.
Due to the unbearably expensive electricity costs here in Germany (> 30cents per kW/h as of 2018) I've had to severely scale down operations.
