as you may know, the “Abteilung Informatik” has been transformed (or should I say “upgraded”) to an independent business unit called “Information Technology”. This means we are newly on the same level to the other University departments such as Business, Engineering & Architecture, Social Work, Arts & Design and Music. We also getting a new building, built for our purpose! This has several implications. Our Enterprise Lab will be moved to the new building, not into the intermediate provisional building. Guess what? The Enterprise Lab acts as a IaaS. So we’ve upgraded to cloud services – did we? Yes we did – 10 years had passed since.
The causative problems for the Super Gau on 20 February, we have not yet figured out. But we are trying to work up the findings. If you want to read a history of events look here. Sandro has made a huge contribution to the rebuild of the Enterprise Lab. I’d like to express my gratitude. Not to mention all others who offered an helping hand such as: Dario Lötscher, Philip Gasser, and Alex Suhl.
I was reading an 4 years old semester work of two students of us. They did an attempt how do we define and measure the power consumption compared by operating systems. Very interesting work. it’s worth to read it!
