Aperture is Redbrick's fleet of hardware that was installed in May 2022 by
arkues. It consists of:
3x Dell R6515
CPU RAM Storage AMD 7302P 3GHz, 16C/32T, 128M, 155W, 3200 2x 16GB RDIMM, 3200MT/s Dual Rank 4x 2TB SATA HDDs (hardware RAID)
2x Ubiquiti USW Pro
- 1x Ubiquiti UDM Pro
The three servers are named
The IP address range for the
aperture subnet is 10.10.0.0/24, with 10.10.0.0/16 being used for user VMs.

Blue cables are used for production network.
nexus is the name of the KVM switch. It's internal IP address is 10.10.0.10.
glados is connected on port 1,
wheatley on port 2, and
chell on port 3.
Yellow cables are used for KVM network.
The new servers are all equipped with IDRACs. These still need to be configured.
Red cables are used for IDRAC network.
Switching from the old network to the new
We have two address ranges that come in on a single redundant link, so we're exchanging that redundant link for two separate links, each taking responsibility for an address range (126.96.36.199/24 and 188.8.131.52/24). So we're surrendering redundancy to gain uptime/connectivity during the switchover only. Once the new servers are production ready, we can recombine the link to regain the redundancy.
