Higher Intellect is a World Wide Web server hosting a searchable database of over 750,000 text files on a variety of subjects. It also hosts a server running on the Hotline and KDX protocols featuring a vast collection of antique software, obscure operating systems, and open source software.
Publicly available collections of information such as the preterhuman.net archive exist to encourage the learning of subjects not usually found in any official school curriculum. Though no recognition is given for the knowledge obtained from public archives, it provides valuable insight into some less known subjects as well as allows for the speed of knowledge intake to be set by the user. These types of archives exist for those who truly seek knowledge and higher education, and not for those who seek the framed certificate on the wall.
Higher Intellect runs off a custom solution provided by Altexxa Group within our primary Kelowna facility. The Higher Intellect archive requires a higher level of bandwidth and storage needs, so we have deployed a solution based on scalable resources and redundant storage. The primary server utilizes a multi-core VMware based virtual instance with fast and redundant SAS/SSD storage, and the bulk of the archive which requires less storage bandwidth but high capacity is served from a FreeBSD based NAS appliance utilizing redundant SATA storage. The instance is also placed behind an IPS to assist with protection and QoS needs.
