Generous Human, Build Infra Updates

Generous Human, Build Infra Updates

After reading a few of our posts about our build infrastructure a very generous human got in touch asking if we'd be willing to accept a hardware donation.

After a brief discussion we were able to work out a deal where we received an HP z400 Workstation. It's a Xeon W3350 with 24Gb RAM and a TON of disk.

😍

We've been hard at work bringing the hardware online and removing the Amazon AWS x86-64 cloud services from our build infrastructure. We still need AWS for some arm builds but Armbian and a few other small things are back in-house.

Our transparency report was also updated to reflect the new hardware we received.

We are still investigating our least-worst option for removing Amazon AWS for some of our bigger arm builds. We'll report back when this hopefully changes.
