Greetings! I'm director of the newly established Wilton Observatory, Grant Harkness. Part of our PreK-12 astronomy initiative is SETI and distributed computing and displaying the real-world applications of both. As part of our initial donations, a large corporation donated used computers to us for data processing. We have since upgraded our computer work stations and have now allocated all 14 work stations to BOINC applications spread amongst the various projects that fit our profile.
That said, is it possible that our 14 HP Elite 8300 i5 Small Form Factor towers could be stripped of their housings and placed in a server rack, linked together to form a single machine? I do have an IT professional on the project but he is heavily burdened with other tasks and has little time for this.
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
