Sun Ray, Remote access, Web, E-Mail (SMTP, IMAP)
Secondary internal DNS (bind)
|This is my latest and greatest real UNIX workstation, now turned into a server. I had a nicely loaded Ultra 60 for a while, but was itching for an upgrade. After much procrastination, I finally decided to forge ahead and get one. However, Sun is once more proving to me that they are incapable of producing a decent graphics card (especially when usable 2D performance comes into play). Thank goodness they got some good engineers to implement the graphics hardware on their Sun Ray thin clients, which is exactly what I'm now running off this machine.
File server (NFS/Samba)
|This machine was my primary server for quite a while. It used to house my older SCSI RAID-5 array, which was a big project of mine for a while. It also made the transition from a normal big case to a proper rackmount case. For a while, I was migrating everything over to a Sun E4000 beast. However, due to practicality and electricity costs, I bit the bullet and built an SATA-based RAID-5 array. Thus it has re-entered active service as a file server.
|This machine is my co-lo server. It used to be a machine built from a mix of things laying around and things I got on the cheap. However, when that machine eventually started to fail, I decided to spend some real money on replacing it. As such, this is a good real-server, and hopefully should last quite a while.
Firewall (pf), Routing (Quagga), Tunnels (OpenVPN)
External DNS (Bind), IDS (Snort/ACID)
SNMP statistics monitoring (Cacti)
|This is my new firewall machine, replacing Neutronium. The reason for the replacement was so I'd be able to take advantage of fancier firewall and traffic shaping software than was available under Solaris. It also has the added bonus of giving me a faster general-purpose CPU which helps with some of the monitoring applications I run on it.
Internal DNS (bind), NTP
LDAP (Sun JSDS), Kerberos (KDC)
Samba (PDC), RADIUS
|This machine had served as my firewall until I replaced it with Tritanium. It is now my internal server for authentication and other internal utility services that I want to decouple from my main servers.
