Server Rooms The old and the new

I know I haven’t been updating recently but there has been loads of stuff going on in the background that I will be boring everyone to tears with soon.

Today I was in a super high tech data centre that also had loads of very complex looking mobile phone infrastructure in it. Loads of blinking lights.

One thing that struck me was that much like every server room or data centre there is ALWAYS some old decrepit piece of kit sitting in the corner. Server room

This rig had an electrical safety sticker marked 1992 on it!  

In fairness it had been moved out of the corner and made it to within 3 meters of the door so in another 5 years or so it may make it to the skip.
