We have the following virtual machines sponsored by Bytemark and hosted on their BigV platform:

  • indico
  • wiki
  • crm

These are held on the 'uknof' account attached to Nat's BigV login. Pete Taphouse at Bytemark is our contact and has been performing various upgrades and arranging for disks to be upgraded from SATA to SSD etc.
