TECT is a large server powering many stenoweb services, as well as local infrastructure and services for Cory's home network. It currently has a 2.4GHz Xeon E5620 processor, 16 gigabytes of memory, and 12TB of usable storage. It was purchased in January, 2011 with four gigabytes of memory and a single 250GB disk for approximately $1300.
When it was new and for the first year or two of its life, TECT ran VMWare ESXi 4 and then 5. It hosted both server and desktop operating systems, and was used for various tasks. There was even a time when it hosted a Windows Server 2008 R2 server with Active Directory and file services enabled, a Solaris 10 server with the SunRay services and the uttsc Terminal Services client, and a Windows 7 desktop, which at the time, I found to be faster than flatdell.
The old Windows Small Business Server 2011 Standard installation has been converted to a VM and TECT now runs Windows Server 2012 R2 with the Hyper-V role. Backups are to external USB hard disks using Veeam Backup & Recovery.
The next steps for TECT at the exact moment are largely:

If something in this machine isn't filled in, I have either failed to update my inventory or the machine is currently inactive or has not been provisioned. Some of the purpose of this list is to have a handy source of new vm hostnames.
