Part of a press release we’re sending out today (full release here):
The popular Groklaw.net, an Open Source legal news and discussion site, will soon be quicker to access because of a gift from Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) to ibiblio.org – the public’s library and digital archive located on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
The two dual-core AMD Opteron™ servers were presented to ibiblio.org in support of Groklaw.net to improve the speed and reliability of the site. ibiblio.org has hosted Groklaw.net since October, 2003.
“AMD is delighted to assist in keeping projects like Groklaw available to the open source community,” said Marc Miller, Open Source Relations Manager in the AMD Developer Outreach team. “This is part of our mission to support open standards, freedom of choice in operating systems, and foster the growth of industries important to the success of AMD products.”
The servers are expected to be in production by April 20, 2007.
