Snapshot.d.o would end up on this storage server (cluster?), too. it will be located in Umeå, Sweden, where we will try to saturate the 2Gbits uplink with it. That site is run by the academic computer club of the local university, with Michael Wadenstein as the local admin. Thanks again to the sponsors.
