Title: Bad Budgets to Good Technology
Science Research started the twenty-first century with a state-of- the-art
networking and storage infrastructure, built out of best-of-breed technology.
But as the infrastructure aged, no sufficient source of replacement funds could
be found. Even basic maintenance of the existing equipment was becoming
difficult. Unless something exceptional could be done, the research mission of
the department was in jeopardy. Hear the twists and turns of our ultimately
successful endeavour to hold our aging infrastructure together, while
simultaneously designing and implementing an new, powerful and innovative
networking and storage research computing infrastructure made entirely from
low-cost commodity equipment.
