The Infrastructure Group for the Computer Science Computing Facility provides as much School-requested infrastructure as our resources allow.
Choice of technology providing this infrastructure is mainly based on open standards, and scalable redundant designs.
We prefer to modernise to a more automatable "fire-proof" infrastructure than building a better "fire-truck" (or fight individual fires).
Resources are prioritised based on:
- general need (size of potential user base),
- reduction of staff maintenance time,
- ergonomics, and
- monetary cost.
