Now we get ready for install our first “production” System and 400Hz power supply.
Working on the CDC960 and reading the backup tape for the CRAY Y-MP EL
A lot has happened in the last few weeks:
- For the operation of the CDC 960 almost all devices are installed in our computer room.
- The power distributor is rebuilt and equipped with new fuses, as well as the 400Hz cable from the generator and the 50Hz supply line within our room is laid and connected.
- The 400Hz generator has been successfully tested.
- Also from the Cray Y-MP EL there is something pleasing to report, we could read the urgently needed SCAN files from a defective original tape.
Here are some impressions:
Fuses were supplied
The fuses and rails for the 230V distribution have arrived. We can now start with the 230V cabling in our small data center.
First action, moved the floor.
cray-cyber.org restarts the computing centre in Grasbrunn near Munich.
First we need an adequate machine room, of course with professional raised floor. Today we moved and installed the floortiles.
Installing the raised floor.
Test, is it stable? 🙂
Next, the first machines will move in.
