There are currently 43 servers at the School, 31 of which are virtual, with a capacity of 34 terabytes of disk space (7.3 terabytes of disk space occupied). These servers run on different operating systems like Linux, Solaris, Windows 2003 and Windows 2008. Most of these resources are located in our Data Processing Center (DPC) in the B6 building with a security environment that controls the temperature and humidity. This room also has physical access controls and countermeasures against electrical power outages.
We are currently setting up new servers in the UPC Private Cloud.
At the School there are twenty-one computer labs distributed over three buildings (A5, B5 and C6). Three of the labs are a special setting for the learning of Operating Systems (design, administration, security...). Also, two labs in the C6 and A5 buildings are for teamwork use. In total there are 372 PCs and 5 Sun Ray.
The communication network allows communication of the inLab computers with the backbone network of the UPC, using Gigabit Ethernet technology. Through this, it connects to RedIRIS, the Spanish academic network, and to the Internet. The network consists of 1141 points configurable to 10/100/1000 Mbps, 23 pieces of networking equipment (switches and routers) and 19 wireless access points 802.11 a/b/g connected to the eduroam network.
The network is distributed among four buildings (B6, A5, B5 and C6). There is a double link connection of Gigabit Ethernet fiber optic to connect these buildings to the backbone. This allows network traffic distribution and makes it fault-tolerant when a single fiber connection fails.
We have a security environment based on high availability of clusters of firewalls that protect the environment or different subnets (rooms, servers and the internal administration network of the FIB).
