2018-10-04: Search server active for recent posts, rebuilding for older posts. RebeccaBlackTech restored after host's storage had a 2nd SAN hiccup on 9/24. No damage, but we need to import posts from the a contingency scraper. Many thanks to our new tetrarchy of sysadmins who worked to fix this complex service after the loss of the original admin. More info later. Donations would still help in case of image storage failure and we still need a new scraper.
The server is stable, but the scraper is at its final limits due to crippling resource use and cloudflare limits, so /gif/ and /wsg/ images are paused. Let's solve this: help build a new scraper. More details here.

Since I somehow enjoy doing sysadmin shit my university teacher asked me that he "wants the cloud" and told me I'm going to build a cluster running OpenStack or some other shitty IaaS thing.

I'm pretty experienced in provisioning server, writing iptables rules and all that jazz but I honestly have no idea what are the best components I can get nowdays.

The budget is around 30.000/40.000 eypos and I have to buy basically everything:

* rack -- I know there are "sliding" racks where the rack body gets out alongside the usual rackmount rails, it would be nice to have, but I can check them by myself.

* UPS -- I think I'll just buy a couple of APC + spare)

* networking rig -- I'll look into that later

* disk arrays -- No clue, I'm browsing the Dell website trying to find the differences between the many. Are 3.5" still being used? I would like to use ZFS, so those things must be usable with Solaris or FreeBSD

* servers -- Not even started looking at those. The teacher told me they could be buying some vidya cards for some machine learning™ in the future, so there should be enough space. Storage in the single servers is not a big issue since I'd like to boot 'em from the network and keep the OS in memory, but having a couple of front facing drives could be handy. Also, should I consider blade setups or they're way too expensive?

When picking the parts I also consider the ease and the price I can get replacement components in case something gets on fire.

I'm kinda out of the loop for this kind of stuff, what are your suggestions/pointers for picking the disk array(s) and the servers? Thanks folks.

can I just put a bunch of FPGAs and make my own computer that is comparable in speed and computation ability of modern GPU/CPUs?
