The Tardis Project is a computing facility, run and maintained by students of The University of Edinburgh. It was one of the first such projects of its kind, founded in 1987 by the School of Informatics (previously Department of Computer Science) and is still held in high regard. Tardis provides services to members of the University, such as web hosting and mail access.

One of the Tardis Project's main aims is to allow students at the university to be involved in running a large computing system, and learn the experience required to design, build and maintain such a system.

Note & NetBox

The wiki isn't up to date on everything (ever) and the majority of system-level documentation is now in NetBox

Here is a list of current changes, major problems and developments going on in Tardis.

rphi has set up a Trello to keep track of things currently happening in Tardis. (One of which is to move this Trello off Trello and onto something hosted within Tardis.)
