P.1: Localization of servers

Agree in moving the resources. Geographical distribution of servers, according to some guidelines:

a. security and bandwhidt
b. local maintenance (hardware, principaly)
c. local legal considerations (p2p, etc.)
  • Residence locations as posible: Italy (Turin, Genova, Salerno); Ecuador; Uruguay; Sweden, India.
 (Will be made a table of some kind: #Server / City / Responsable)
  • On each place, with a "goodfather" as a server's coordinator (= Responsable).
  • The international distribution of contents, is considered a important choice for security and legal reasons.
  • Perhaps will be necessary to standby the distribution of some machines in order of these international relocalization of the equipments. The international moving out of EU would be a problem to resolve (physical and financiary).
  • Explore the posibilities to expand to others countries, as Russia, Ukrania, etc..
  • Is defined a primer chronogram for moving some equipment (> May 16, move to Turin).

P.2: Policy

  • Some servers will be dedicated to multiprocessing, hosting a blender farm or/and projects like this (rendering processes), with good bandwidth.
  • Projects started to rebuild: unasur/dakshinsur; space-hipatia
  • Projects will be made under hipatia brand
  • Rules will be made. Include compromise.
  • Start-point documents:

P.3: Getting funds

  • We agree in that is necessary to design a robust project to get funds.
  • The goals of the project define the funds's sources.
  • Posibles sources: UNESCO,
