It's all built out of wood. A server room full of wood.
How is this even allowed? What the actual fuck?
Jonathan - Dag siden
Where is the telecommunications grounding bus bar for the rack and anything it touches? That’s code in commercial rack installs. You should have two circuits going into the room for 2 upses or that one might support dual circuits? Then have 2 PDUs in the rack for each circuit feeding each server power supply. So each server is powered by 2 circuits connected to two UPSes or two busses on the UPS. So if one circuit goes down.

Maybe consider a raised floor with air conditioning flowing under like I see in the data centers I work in. Easy for cable management easy to hide power. And keeps things cool.

so who did the original install? Was it Brian? I re-watched the video installing the old one and it was just linus and another guy putting the batteries in.

I might look like a fool , but i must ask, why do u guys need a dedicated server room this big, even if including all the data for the 3D printers along with raw files, it cant be this much

*Complains about spending like $90 on custom cheap PCs*
Also Linus:
*Doesn’t seem bothered about buying a $30000 server replacing a $10000+ server.*

Do you even math bro? They covered the cost of the unit. He paid for batteries, warranty, and whatever else. So he probably paid like 15k-17k. Not bad considering the original one was out of warranty.

Try Vertiv UPS they’re better. Also they’ve good PAC units typically for small sized server rooms also with RH control & also for other types of sensible heat generating environment.

Doesn't he lock the server room? Kind of defeats the purpose of the lock if you can just open a triangle in the wall to get in.

Sorry I'm so late to the party. Eaton really has some explaining to do and Linus should really get his money back for this bullshit. See if you can find anything in the manual that mentions this: https://www.eaton.com/content/dam/eaton/products/backup-power-ups-surge-it-power-distribution/backup-power-ups/eaton-9170-resources/Eaton_9170Plus_Users_Guide.pdf I certainly can't. Further my guess would be those rails don't need a locking nut since they're soldered on. Then go and immediately try to shift blame on anyone but themselves. No a "service" wouldn't have caught cables in an non-service area. The only reason they should be in there is to replace a broken module.
