New Disaster Recovery Data Centre

Print PDF

CSC has commissioned a new disaster recovery data centre (DRDC) in the SIT building on September 13, 2014. The DRDC has been built by IBM and can support a total IT load of 60 KW. It has redundant UPS power supplies and precision airconditioners in N+N and N+1 configurations respectively. The DRDC is 2 hr fire rated has been designed for an annualized average Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) of 1.55. 

CSC has migrated a redundant set of network stack, storage and blade servers to the DRDC, and an active redundant set of fibres from all academic and hostel distribution switches are terminated at the DRDC. The infrastructure blades and the storage servers in the CSC and DRDC have Layer 2 connectivity and all CSC virtual machines can run from either site. CSC can now offer its infrastructure services from either or both the locations.

From now on all CSC infrastructure and ERP data (except Baadal and ACSS data) will be available live in two different locations - CSC and DRDC. Every bit of CSC infrastructure data from now on will be synchronously written in both locations and can be served from either.

Internet access restrictions from the WiFi network

Because of a large number of indiscriminate bittorrent downloads of copyrighted material, and the subsequent legal notices that IITD received, all direct access to the internet from the WiFi network has been withdrawn with effect from August 8, 2014. Internet access from the WiFi network is now restricted to ports 21, 80, 443, 8080 and 8443 through the proxy servers. Please see the Network access and monitoring policy for details.

Restored only for faculty from November 17, 2014.

Proxy access through WiFI

Print PDF

From 1800 hrs on Feb 11, 2014 CSC is changing the proxy authentication mechanism for internet access when connected through the WiFi network.

When connected through the WiFi SSIDs IITD_WIFI{1,2,3} and EDUROAM, users will automatically be logged on to their respective proxy servers. Users will still be required to specify the correct proxy server in their system or web browser. The proxy server can be specified either as an automatic proxy configuration URL (such as or manual proxy configuration as proxy?? or IP-address-of-the-proxy-server:port (these parameters can be noted from the web-portal for proxy authentication). Users will be automatically logged out of the proxy server when they disconnect from WiFi.
