We had a few white racks on our data-floor while most of our racks are black. So we decided to replace the few white racks. The change wasn't needed for the consistent color, but the new racks have an higher degree of perforation allowing an better airflow for the servers.

AC unit 1 had big maintenance, the compressor needed to be replaced. This component is the heart of the AC unit since this part keeps the liquid flowing in the installation so that it can transport the heat to the outside.
The maintenance was a success and AC 1 is running again.

Our UPS had his first big maintenance. In this maintenance window the bypass of the ups was replaced.
The ups was offline for a few hours. Before the maintenance we started our emergency power generator for backup power. So if there is a power outage, our generator is already stared and can take over immediately without power loss to our data floor.

Due to the rapid grow of the IT needs of our customers we needed to expand our power connection. For this expansion a new heavy power cable was needed. This cable runs directly from our building to the transformer-building.
With the new power cable in place we are able to provide 3 times more power then before. Enough to power our complete datacenter at 100% load.

Today five years ago the first server was installed at our data center. Since then a lot has changed. We went from a Tier 1 data center to a Tier3 data center. Also we have now many more equipment hosted at our data center.
The next picture shows our data-room in 2011 VS Now.

It did take some time but finally our emergency power generator is ready for use.
The power generator is capable to takeover automatically when the power grid fails. It takes only 15 seconds and the generator is fully started.
