Beauty and the Server Room
We spent about an hour in the server room of the Computer Science and Engineering Building yesterday, looking for that perfect shot of the massive Dell servers. We think we found it--well, more than one perfect shot in fact. See for yourself.
By the way, the servers are used to run complex simulations and calculations used by the faculty in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering. At last count, the department had 50 faculty members, 332 graduate students and 1656 undergraduates. Its focus areas include machine learning, databases, graphics and vision, systems and networking, security and cryptography, software engineering, bioinformatics, computer architecture, embedded systems and theoretical computer science.
