Datacenter Power

As some of you may know, I am on a long detour from programming and system administration to the area of civil and electrical engineering, building supervision and datacenter design. Hopefully this detour is nearing to its end, as our new faculty building with its datacenter is almost ready.

More to come in the CVT FI blog, available to those who have access credentials to IS MU.
