We upgraded the IT infrastructure of our research project and replaced the old HP ProLiant DL380 G5 with a new shiny Supermicro pizza box server, equipped with an Intel Xeon hexa core, 128 GiB ECC memory, and two mirrored 1920 TiB SSDs. The new server runs FreeBSD 11 on top of the ZFS file system.
In data migration process we changed the backend and the design of the project website as well. Outdated pages have been removed and new content will be added soon. The server also got an X.509 certificate for Transport Layer Security (TLS) from the “Let’s Encrypt” Certificate Authority. All web services are now reachable by HTTPS only.
