  • Photos from our systems and servers room

    What about a thread with some photos of our systems and servers room?

    I start

    1 - Prinergy servers;
    2 - Gigabit switch and KVM console;
    3 - Ripro and old storage towers (we convert the ripro in a 1.2 Tb storage server, just using old towers eheheh)
    4 - The AIT jukebox
    5 - The AC unit in the servers room

    That's all for now, I hope you like to see my photos, I'm waiting for yours

    Hugs

    Ricardo

              Impressive erwin

              Can you give us a little explanation about it?

              We want ours mounted in rack too, but the big boss (grrrrrrrrr) forget to mentioned it to Kodak.

                rmagalhaes,

                Hey, nice photos. I don't know if you know or would spend the money, but Dell does sell conversion kits for many of their servers to be converted from towers to rack servers. I am not entirely sure the cost per, but it might be worth a look.

                I was wondering, the infrasture you showed in your photos is all for prepress, do you have a similar setup for your corporate network? If so, why did you isolate your prepress infrastructure?

                  Hi Rugby

                  Yes, what you saw in the photos is just for the Prepress departament. We have this "small" data center in Prepress (we like independence ehehe) and a bigger one for the corporate network.

                  Ricardo

                  ps: hey... and your photos?
                  ps1: two more photos, Veris proofers and our old improofers (Epson7600 and a couple of Iris43 wide)

                    Ricardo,

                    I am curious why you have elected to maintain a seperate "small" data center in prepress and not share common resources (i.e. UPS(s), Generator(s), Cooling, etc.). Does the prepress department employee someone trained in security, disaster recovery, etc.?

                      I can speak for us in this matter as we also have a separate area for prepress as the rest of the company. Other than email and internet services, we are entirely independent of the company IT.

                      To put it bluntly, we don't want our stuff messed with. I think this comes from the prepress folks traditionally being very technical people and thinking independently due to a Mac OS-centric infrastructure. Although, being Mac-centric is not necessarily the case anymore, it has fostered the independent thinking of keeping the traditionally Windows-centric IT people away from our Macs. That being said, I much prefer the cooperation that we now share with IT. It creates a great learning environment for them and us.

                        slivingston: you take the words out of my mouth

                        rugby: we share common resources like UPS, generator, security central (fire, % humidity, temperature, etc), we just have a extra AC unit in the room.

                        Does the prepress department employee someone trained in security, disaster recovery, etc.?
