[ldm-users] LDM: Hey, hey, you, you, get onto my cloud

Hey everyone,

So I am trying to be wooed from our campus IT department to get onto their cloud of servers. They say they could put on an any operating system that I want,presuming Centos 6.X when it gets released...and if so, they talk it to the moon:

Up to 2 TB hard drive space
20 gigabit/sec throughput as of this fall to the Internet2/NLR
2 gb/sec to commodity Internet
24/7 monitoring as of this month
Now backed up fully by a UPS and a new generator
3 sources of A/C from 2 rooftop units

Mirrored in two different places in town, one
on campus, one off-campus, and if one is destroyed,
I can be back up within 20 minutes

So...has anyone actually done this, and is it worth it? I'm afraid to slam everyone else in my "cloud". Or, is Mick Jagger right, should I stay
off of this cloud?
