I have four “scooter computers” that we’re no longer using any more at Discourse*, but I will mail them to you for free if
- you live in the USA
- you reply to this topic with your plan to host Discourse instances on them
Specs are somewhat modest but more than enough for hosting several Discourse instances each:
- Intel Broadwell i5-5200 2 core / 4 thread CPU at 2.2 - 2.7 GHz
- 120 GB SATA3 SSD (generic brand)
- 16GB RAM
- dual gigabit ethernet, dual HDMI video, 8 USB ports
- fanless, completely silent
All four boxes were vetted and reliable when running in our infrastructure, and have been drive wiped and are working 100% fine, ready for a clean install of Ubuntu Server LTS!
* It’s a long story but we decided lack of built in IPMI (remote always on KVM-over-IP) was no longer tenable for our infrastructure longer term.
So, if you are interested in these cute little server boxes, reply here with a story of how you will host Discourse instances with them.
