Nudgee College needed to move their computer room because the building it was in was to be refurnished and partially demolished. We were more than happy to take on the task. Here’s the low down on what was involved.
Nudgee Computer Room Move
We had to withdraw the existing fibre plant from the old room
The old room
The old room
The new room under construction (one week late)
On the power side of the building with the cable tray on the ceiling
While we working, Mice were busy elsewhere. The wrong FOBOT cover was used by previous contractors
Racks being delivered
New room presented to us bare although this picture shows we had roughed in a few components
Preparing the 3 phase power
Removing and re-installing doors was required to get the racks in
Fibre works start so that we can move servers in as a 2 part process
Power to the racks now and more fibre.
Running fibre to other parts of the school was sometimes tricky due to poor workmanship of other contractors. For example, an icecream container holding back water from getting in. We had to properly route the fibre in and seal up the hole behind this. The pipe work was full of water just behind this.
Building power board done!
Shutting down the servers just before the move from the old computer room. The following day the building it was in was going to be demolished. We should have done this 10 days ago.
About to shut down the core switch
Installing equipment into the new racks
