The project focuses on renewing the current ICT-system in the 8th floor server room, at KTH, Kista.

The current ICT-system, surrounding administrative tasks and user functionality are described, and a new improved ICT-system proposal is given. The current and proposed systems are compared. The current ICT-system gives users access to 16 Intel E7501, servers with 2.4 GHz Xeon processors, and 1.5-2 GB of RAM, and 16 SUN Fire v120 servers.

These servers are in the proposed ICT-system replaced with hardware capable of running 64-bit software. The future ICT‐system proposal is based on VMware vSphere 4, and surrounding VMware management software. The solution focuses on providing a more flexible and easier administration of the environment, as well as more possibilities for the users, for example in the form of virtual networking configurations.

The server room has networking equipment most notably in the form of HP switches, which are kept in the proposed system. The servers that support the server room are also incorporated into the proposed system, these supporting server provide the server room with all surrounding services. Due to hardware incompatibilities the proposed ICT-system has not yet been implemented.
