Re: Seen this kind of thing
Back in my early days in
IT EDP as a lowly Computer Operator, we had a similar problem in NZ. Over winter a number of new washing machine sized HDD drives had been added. Come February (usually the hottest month in Auckland) the central air conditioning system couldn't cope with the extra heat, so several millions of dollars of ICL 2900 mainframe and associated equipment had to be powered down every afternoon from 2pm to 6pm.
The problem was quickly solved by adding some large window mounted aircon units. Upgrading the building systems was too difficult.
