Hi all, if you need it, I have a Geoserver Instance not doing much at the
moment that could be used. geoserver loves geoTiffs. It is trivial to set
it up. Just a matter of dropping the Geotiff into a directory, configuring
a layer and its ready to go.

Its a 2TB 32Gb Ram Ubuntu Trusty Server with lots of bandwidth available.
