We have finally migrated our first service over to the new compute cluster, and decided that physical member servers would be step one.
This means that our old (not very old though) member server discovery.ludd.ltu.se will be discontinued. It also means that if you were using taurus.ludd.ltu.se, luminous.ludd.ltu.se, or any of our other servers, they are gone too.
Our 4 new servers are as follows:
Each server has the following specs: 2x Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2678 v3 @ 2.50GHz, 12-core CPUs totalling 48 threads 64GB DDR3 RAM @ 1800MHz
These servers are ThinLinc-enabled, which means you can download the ThinLinc client and access your desktop from anywhere. https://www.cendio.com/thinlinc/download
To use the servers with ThinLinc, please connect ThinLinc to echo.ludd.ltu.se, which serves as the master server (not a member server). Session life is set to never expire, so you can always disconnect from a session and come back later.
For people using
best will be updated to point to the new member servers in a while. Please
remember that load balancing on best is done purely by round-robin DNS, so
there is no guarantee that best will actually give you the best server, or any
working server at all for that matter.
If you have any issues with the servers, please contact the administrators.
