  3. Report from Computing Executive Group

    1. Gas suppression system

      There was a general view that it would be desirable to obtain independent confirmation of the correctness of the Gas suppression system (including the provision of a hold-off button) before the system was re-enabled. It was pointed out that the self-managed server room was also covered by this system.

  4. Reports from units

  5. Topics for discussion

    1. Where should people run their own web daemons

      It was agreed that the best solution was to provide people with their own VM for this with onward access to the Informatics network disabled. If provisioning of VMs becomes a problem, we may need to revisit this.
