Donations sought for SATA drives
GOAL REACHEDThank to the generousity of many individuals, the goal has been reached. There are a few cheques yet to be recived, but the goal has been surpassed by about US$35. Thank you.
What are the donations for?I’m asking for donations to pay for eight SATA drives. These drives will be used in the 2U server donated by iXsystems. I’ve written about this server previously:
- Dual Opteron server 15 Jun 2006
- Dual Opteron Server – the drives22 Jun 2006
- More dual opteron images 9 Jul 2006
What is the goal?The goal is US$1400.
What exactly is being bought?The drive in question is the WD RE2. They are available from NewEgg for US$169.99 each. With shipping, that brings the total to about US$1405. I’m not 100% sure who I will be buying from, but I am pretty sure it’s these drives I’ll be getting. The funds raised will be used for hard drives. If surplus funds are donated, I may look at buying different drives.
How can you donate?No more donations for now, thank you.
AcknowledgmentsUnless otherwise requested, all donations will be acknowledge here by name and amount. If you wish to remain anonymous, please state this and I will list your donation amount but will not include your name.
