Wikipedia distributes old servers

    retelling of the entry from the wikimedia technical blog :

    Wikimedia (the nonprofit organization managing the website), the same one that collects donations with pity eyes Jimbo once a year , announced a program to distribute old servers to all those in need (non-profit organizations).

    These servers ended with a three-year warranty and it was decided to give them to those who would need them (since they no longer fit the needs of Wikipedia).

    Servers of approximately this configuration:

    Brand configs from Dell and Sun:
    * 2 Xeon'a 2.5 GHz
    * From 2 to 8 GB of RAM
    * Several hard drives.

    Applications are accepted only from American non-profit organizations with similar views (in the original: like-minded ).
