The testbed is still there.  It's described in Section 1.1 of the 
document referred to in my previous post:

------------------------ Begin included text ------------------------
The DNS-OARC testbed is a collection of server and networking
hardware used for simulations and performance testing. The testbed

- (16) HP ProLiant DL140 G3 servers
-  (2) D-Link DGS-3024 24-port gigabit Ethernet (1000BASE-T) switches
-  (1) Dell 100BASE-T switch for out-of-band management
-  (1) Dell PowerConnect 3448 server configured as a PXE-boot server,
      management host, and proxy for the testbed servers

Each HP ProLiant DL140 G3 server has:

-  (2) 3 GHz Xeon dual-core processors (four cores total)
-      16 GB RAM (one server has 32 GB RAM)
-  (1) 70 GB SAS disk
-  (2) Broadcom BCM5721 gigabit Ethernet adapters
-  (1) HP Lights-Out 100i remote management port
