                  hw: SGI Origin 2000, irix6.5

Aisa has been running on SGI Origin 2000 hardware with Origin Vault external disk box since 2000, and was the last non-Linux UNIX server in faculty-wide use (there may be few OpenSolaris and other UNIX boxes here and there, used inside some laboratory, but that's all).

The hardware is still relatively up-to-date even in today's terms: 8 CPUs (at 350 MHz), 2 GB RAM, 100 Mbit ethernet, etc. It has been extremely stable: e.g. no disk have crashed in the last few years (actually, I don't remember any disk crash in Aisa at all, but my memory might be fading, especially concerning the first few years of production use of this server).
