Tekmote's prices were high. If they went out of business I'm not surprised.

I bought my first one from Lemote's Alibaba store. The store goes offline a
lot because of general lack of interest. If you send them a message they
come back on again. They're pretty responsive once you get rolling but it
sometimes takes a few days to wake 'em up.

I bought my second one direct from Lemote after having having gotten a
little familiar with some of the people there. As far as I know they will
not sell the rack servers outside of China. The other stuff should be mostly
available through the Lemote Alibaba shop.
