Topic: bunniefoo now powered by Novena!
Fun fact: bunniefoo.com is now powered by Novena. bunniefoo.com hosts all the images and content on bunniestudios.com and kosagi.com, as well as the redmine bug track (bunniefoo.com/redmine) based on ruby, and a web2py interface for random silly foo. It was running on an x86 before, but we just ported all the content over to a Novena and plugged it into the router today.
http://www.kosagi.com/w/index.php?title … food_Setup documents the configuration for the system.
Basically, Novena is plugged directly into the fiber line via the 100Mbit port (our fiber line is limited to 100Mbits down/up). The Gbit port links back to a hub that talks to a set of back-up servers and machines for off-loading content that has to run on x86 (we have a vague notion that perhaps we'll run Xilinx FPGA builds on a slave x86 instance driven by the Novena front end).
Also, the wifi card is configured as an AP, so you can connect directly to the system via wireless if you know the credentials.
The OS and primary content is stored on an SSD plugged into the SATA port, but we also run a local debian package mirror and those files are stored on a magnetic drive plugged in via USB. This helps accelerate local test installations.
This is sort of the ultimate burn-in test for Novena, as all the major data ports have something plugged into them and it's being exercised constantly.
