The Science Circle OpenSim grid

 

 

The Science Circle maintains an OpenSim based grid for more then 7 years now.

At our grid we have 3 regions, the WelcomeZone, Gaia and the sandbox for our builders and scripters. 

Voice, Groups, Profiles, Hypergrid are working and all seem stable. 

The grid runs on OpenSim 0.9.0.0. It is also possible to connect you own simulator region to the Science Circle grid.
