Schematic of the planned server room


Here is a sketch of the planned server room with the expected location of the technologies and the original plans of the building.

Server room diagram

In the diagram you can see:

  • The blue marked areas that will remain O2 (their telephone exchange, backup power system and cable room). These will not be interfered with in any way, leaving 2 passages.
  • Rows of racks marked in brown (depths of 60, 80 and 100 cm), with space for atypical devices or even deeper racks in the upper part. The server room can accommodate a total of about 160. Instead of 60cm racks, shelves for classic PCs can be placed against the wall.
  • The red-brown colour is mainly used to mark the area where the main electrical switchboard will be located, the smaller switchboards will be placed differently around the room as required. In the same corner there is space for the UPS and batteries.
  • The purple colour indicates the places reserved for cooling technology. However, a lot depends on what technology is used. Depending on the situation, they can be located in other parts of the building.
  • Outside you can see the approximate location of the outdoor air conditioning units, motor generator and transformer.

Information about the server room

  • server room diagram
  • total space: approx. 330 m2
  • space filled mainly with rack cabinets with servers
  • hot and cold aisles between rows of rack cabinets
  • UPS and electrical switchboards will also be placed in the space
  • estimated number of rack cabinets when full: 160
  • estimated number of servers when full: 6000
  • double floor, height 40 cm, electrical, data network and cold air distribution
  • without suspended ceilings
  • only one entrance door

Condition before reconstruction

This is what the whole ground floor looks like now. It is divided into many small rooms. Rooms 118, 120, 121 and 122 will remain intact (O2 premises). Almost all the other walls will come down. However, a load-bearing wall stretches through the middle, which is partially breaking through, but parts of it must remain. What part of the load-bearing wall can be demolished, we will only find out from the structural engineer.

Entrance areas 101, 102 and 103 will also remain.
