Self-managed server room – ventilation and noise levels

In a previous post we mentioned that noise levels in the self-managed server room (i.e. B.Z14) of the Informatics Forum were higher than we might like. And users of that room can’t have failed to notice that it’s also been much hotter and stuffier than anyone might like …

We’re pleased to say that alterations have now been made which radically improve the ventilation to that room. The results are that the air temperature is now pleasant, and – since we no longer need to use ventilation tiles equipped with active fans – the noise levels are much reduced.

There is some still some tuning and adjustment of the air-conditioning system left to do but, all-in-all, the alterations have been a complete success. We’re very grateful to our colleagues in Estates & Buildings for their help in getting this work done.
