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.
I would like to share some photos of our infrastructure. Here are photos from our power distribution room (image labels are in Czech only, sorry):
And here is the image gallery from our UPS room and its service area. We use Dynamic UPS (DUPS), which does not maintain its backup power in the lead cells, but instead uses a huge flywheel, which allows to bridge the short gap between the power outage and start of a diesel engine:
More to come in the CVT FI blog, available to those who have access credentials to IS MU.
