The KernelTrap server was upgraded last night to a Dell PowerEdge SC1435 which utilizes a Dual Core AMD Opteron 2212HE. The server was purchased using funds generated by the advertising displayed on these pages. Additional specifications can be found in the KernelTrap FAQ.
KernelTrap.org experienced some unexpected downtime today as the data center housing the KernelTrap server suffered a prolonged power outage. The ever-helpful Oregon State University Open Source Lab [story] explains, "this morning the OSL data center suffered a power outage with the generator eventually failing," going on to note, "we will be meeting to find out what failed and how to prevent it in the future." All systems are returned to normal, and we should not see any further problems.
