A part of the infra moved!

Dear followers, we are happy to announce that a part of the DAPLAB infrastructure moved to another server room in the Engineering buildings. We are now occupying two server rooms in two separated buildings and this has some consequences – hopefully for the best.

  • We are now safer by occupying two server rooms. In case of fire or cooling defect, we are “room redundant”;
  • We can now acquire more capacity – we expect good news in the next few weeks for more storage and more computation power in DAPLAB;
  • The network link between the two legs of DAPLAB is not optimal yet (i.e. no fibers). We however fight for it. For now let’s see how Yarn handles this situation and let’s see if our server split was well-thought.

Keep tuned for more news soon.
