HyperCube is a debian etch machine, hosted at TelaScience, which is to be used for the Geodata repository and related tasks.
Currently, there is a second machine serving geodata related tasks: geodata.telascience.org, aka xblade11-2. Hopefully, we will be able to migrate from geodata to hypercube.
Any changes made to the machine -- software installed, changes to config files, etc. -- should be recorded here so that the machine is in a state which can be reproduced if it fails.
Data on HyperCube's local disk is not, at the moment, backed up or running under RAID. If your data is important, please keep a backup or keep it in SVN somewhere.
