Rain is a CHG auxiliary production server. Rain is meant to be a workhorse that houses a large chunk of CHG datasets and processes and serve as the VNC server. Rain is also intended to serve as backup space for zippy. The VMs chg-smb, chg-dub, chg-git, and chg-cscd are also housed on rain. Some functionality has been transferred to ubu, CHG's main server.
