The intent of the project is to provide a community toolbox for the 68kMLA. This includes data storage, web hosting, and ultimately vintage-friendly email.
Vtools as it stands today is a Power Macintosh G4 “QuickSilver 2002” running Mac OS 9.2.2 and AppleShare IP 6.3.3.
The system has 1GB of RAM and a 40GB hard disk, and additional storage is, at present, connected with firewire.
vtools is set to be migrated to newer hardware running Mac OS X Server. Mac OS X Server has the advantage of working on newer hardware, being more reliable, opening up a few more services that can be run, and allowing bigger single volumes.
The ultimate intent is to split homes, osx-sw and classic-sw into their own separate disks, to maximize on available space for each task. An enclosure such as this https://www.startech.com/HDD/Enclosures/usb-esata-removable-5-drive-enclosure~S355BU33ERM will eventually be used.
