First cups of tea in kitchen of new Timico data centre in NewarkSome more photographic action from the new data centre – we get the keys next week and today we have been in doing some preparation.

Firstly we installed a small server with some basic utilities to get us up and running when the meaty kit arrives on Monday.


Then we made a cup of tea – the first in the new kitchen – yay.Will Curtis installs a switch at the new Timico Datacentre

OK question for you.  How many engineers does it take to install a switch? Click on the photo of Will to find out.

Shouldn’t you be using trolleys to carry the heavy equipment around on? Ian is a very weak young man remember 🙂

Looking good anyway Tref. Look forward to my tour at some point 🙂

It’s actually a fine bit of British craftsmanship, hand built using traditional techniques and assembled in situ by members of the Guild of Mastercraftsmen at the pinnacle of their careers who will look back at this point in time and remember it as their finest hour 🙂

No Rupertrogue. It was designed for the new office of Calum Malcom, our Group Operations Director whose room is the only one big enough to take it 🙂 However Calum at the last minute opted for the jacuzzi with the artificial putting green next to it so the receptionist got the desk.
