So, after all that talk of upgrading and cleaning up our existing ltsp environments... I discovered I have a 2*8core xeon with 128gb of memory machine sitting here... thanks based staging area.
13:49
This is probably the most welcome surprise I've found when walking into a new/unknown environment ;)
13:51
<alkisg>
wow, good one :)
13:51
do you have thin clients, or all they all fats?
13:55
<mwalters>
all pxebooting thin clients
13:56
The only caveat is that we're doing home folder sync across sites, so as we upgrade each, we'll probably want to turn that off
13:56
I don't really plan on doing this site, and a site 50km away on the same day/weekend ;)
13:58
but yeah, after mulling it over, I really think ltsp makes more financial sense. Even at $300, the cost still adds up when you're buying 40 chromebooks
14:00
esp when thinking about how short the replacement cycle is likely to be (drops, spills, general wear & tear)
14:01
<alkisg>
Usually it's the opposite, 40 fat clients + a simple server are cheaper than 40 thin clients + a monster server
14:02
And perform much, much better
14:02
But since you already have the hardware... :)
14:20
<mwalters>
yeah, the production server(s) are similar hardware, but with 2 psus, raid, etc, etc.
