IBM donates hardware for builds

I am spoiled.

I have lost my right to complain about lack of hardware.


After Google and Intel, it's IBM's turn to donate some hardware to the Eclipse Foundation.  This time, a pair of IBM x3550 M2 servers, with two Intel Xeon 5504 Quad-core processors and a whopping 36 GB of RAM.  Oh, and (3) 146G SAS drives attached to an LSI RAID controller.

This is the second time IBM has donated hardware to the Foundation.  The first round included a trio of POWER5-based servers with a tray full of hard drives.  Thanks, IBM!

Details on how these servers will be deployed will follow in the multi-part series I started here.
