Curtisc is willing to host the GIMPS server. I've told him we are still in the early planning stages, so nothing is going to happen right away.

He will need to know what the University would have to provide (bandwidth requirements, a fixed IP address?, reboots?, router support in case of DOS attacks?, etc).

We need to decide if the savings are worth it. A colocation agreement would give us better UPS, support in case of a hardware failure, automatic system backups and restores?, etc.)

No rush on making a decision. Though, I'm sure I've missed some pros and cons that we can debate now.
