Timico data centre update

UPS batteries in the new Timico data centreNot long to go before we start kitting the new data centre out as a data centre so I’ve chosen some a local artisan finishes off the decorative touches of the interior design of the second floor of the new Timico building in Newarkartistic and tasteful photos for your delight. Of course they might not be to everyone’s taste but there is beauty in the modern day industrial infrastructure of the country – just as we now admire the steam the view from the fire escape of the new Timico data centre in Newarkengines and rows of red brick mills that were once associated with satanic darkness.

This time around the jobs created will be highly skilled and professional at a  time when we could do with some good news in the local economy.

We are in the process of hiring for the extended shifts that will be necessitated by the 24×7 operational nature of the  expanded Network Operations Centre.

Last week we ok’d the purchase of a wall of monitor screens for electrical switch gear in one of the new data halls at the Timico data centre in Newarkthe operations room itself. I’m quite excited about this as it will have a high visibility impact on the place –  all controlled by an iPad or similar (I asked what they would be using for a remote control for all those TVs – more on this in due course).  As I said not long now.

Bye for now.

  1. Re. Remote control monitors…

    I’ve just set my Dad’s (86yo & loves a gadget!) new Samsung D8000 Smart TV up so that he can use his iPad to control things 🙂

    It works well – ‘typing’ using the standard TV remove is dead loss so a qwerty keyboard comes in handy.

    Here’s a link to the free Samsung app on iTunes:

    There’s an Andorid version as well:

    You’ll have to watch out that your operators don’t take half the country offline when they are playing on their phones!

    1. Well BE I have 4 kids so a) a Ferrari is not practical and b) the fact that I have all these kids means I will never be able to afford one anyway 🙂
