So spricht man heute sogar von Rechenzentren als den neuen Fabriken des Herzlich willkommen am Standort in München, der in einem unauffälligen Gebäude untergebracht ist.
Das Gebäude ist mit den neuesten Einbruchsicherungstechnologien ausgestattet. Der Zugang zu den Servern ist einer ausgewählten Gruppe von Spezialisten vorbehalten. Um zu den Servern zu gelangen, muss ein Mitarbeiter zunächst einen speziellen Ausweis über ein Lesegerät halten, dann wird die Handfläche gescannt. Wenn Speichermedien zum Austausch anstehen, werden die alten Platten sofort zerstört. Kein Speichermedium verlässt das Rechenzentrum in einem Stück.
Eindringschutz ist nur die eine Seite der Medaille, um die Datensicherheit zu gewährleisten. Die andere sehr reale Gefahr ist Feuer. Das Brandrisiko ist angesichts des hohen Stromverbrauchs in Rechenzentren, der Vielzahl brennbarer Materialien, der vielen Kabel und der durch die Kühlsysteme bedingten hohen Luftgeschwindigkeit hoch. Sechs Prozent der Infrastrukturausfälle in Rechenzentren sind auf sie zurückzuführen.
Wenn der Alarm ausgelöst wird, wird Gas in das Gebäude gepumpt, um den Sauerstoffgehalt zu senken und so das Feuer sofort zu ersticken.
Darüber hinaus informiert das System automatisch die lokale Feuerwehr. Sicherheit und Zuverlässigkeit sind ein Aspekt beim Betrieb von Rechenzentren. Ein weiterer Gesichtspunkt ist die Verfügbarkeit. Hier ist Redundanz das Stichwort.
Das gilt für die Klimaanlagenkomponenten ebenso wie für die Systeme, die die Stromversorgung der Einrichtung gewährleisten. So würde zum Beispiel bei einem Stromausfall ein Dieselaggregat anspringen und den benötigten Strom liefern. Der Inhalt eines Tanks reicht aus, um den Betrieb des Rechenzentrums für 48 Stunden aufrechtzuerhalten. So zeichnen Rechenzentren für 1,5 bis 2 Prozent des weltweiten Energiebedarfs verantwortlich.
Aber der Standort in München nimmt eine Ausnahmestellung ein, denn hier stammt der Strom aus regenerativen Energien und eingebauter Effizienz. So wird beispielsweise die Abwärme der Server mit dazu genutzt, das Gebäude im Winter zu beheizen. Das Gebäude selbst wurde so gebaut, dass es so wenig Energie wie möglich verbraucht.
So gibt es in den Serverräumen etwa einen Doppelboden, der den Einsatz von Klimaanlagen mit einem niedrigen Energieverbrauch ermöglicht.
Auch die Server sind so konfiguriert, dass der Energieverbrauch möglichst gering ist. S Green Building Council verliehen wurde. Wo immer es möglich war, wurde Siemens-Technologie installiert. Das Ergebnis ist ein lebendes Beispiel dafür, zu welch herausragenden Leistungen Siemens fähig ist — von modernsten Sicherheitseinrichtungen bis hin zu höchster Verfügbarkeit und Energieeffizienz.
Um den Flaggschiff-Status zu erhalten, wird das Rechenzentrum ständig weiterentwickelt. Daher sorgen wir für die Nachverfolgung unserer Energieverbrauchseffizienz Power Usage Effectiveness — PUE , um zu gewährleisten, dass unsere Unterstützungssysteme effizient arbeiten.
Cute and plausible moments followed by rushes of feeling that didn't seem to f I enjoyed a few aspects of this book and disliked several others. Cute and plausible moments followed by rushes of feeling that didn't seem to follow the pace for growth that was previously set.
And the resolution with Syd's proposed fiance completely lacks any sense of plausible resolution. All tension leading up to that point is doused when, it turns out, there was nothing really to fear and a simple solution was readily accepted. While there were individual scenes that interested me, I would not pick up the book in order to re-read.
Dec 20, Ellie rated it liked it. British accents are actually the ones that have changed over the years, not American ones. Thus, the American accent you hear today is actually closer to how people spoke in England years ago than a current British accent! I really liked this book right up until the main character, Syndney, is revealed to be a woman. The plot until then was rich and funny and cute and full of great little moments.
However, after said revelation, the book seemed to drag on and on and on and Fun Fact: However, after said revelation, the book seemed to drag on and on and on and on and on. It was filled with too many unnecessary subplots that, while I'm sure will be expanded upon in the sequels, made the story too complicated and detached.
Can we just be a little more realistic? I highly doubt a man thinking for a month that Sydney is a man will instantly begin to admire how beautiful she is and be way overprotective the second he discovers Sydney is actually a woman. Apr 07, Margaret Hardie rated it liked it. It was a fun story. I laughed, liked the characters and was excited for a wonderful potential romance. Then it just lost me and got all wound up in a preachy mess.
I felt I was reading two different stories. I love wholesome God infused themes, but this was just over the top for me. I didn't feel the characters 'conversion' to Christianity was anything but author contrived - just 'stuck' in there because it is supposed to be a Christian book. I didn't think the character was so 'un-Christian' before, just sad and needed time to heal.
I felt the autor did kind of the opposite of when movie people stick in an inappropriate love scene just to get the ratings, yet it just was not necessary. The story made me FEEL touched and uplifted. I didn't feel it at all. It didn't end up being a great historical novel It didn't end up being a comforting spiritual feast, nor did it end up being a great love story. Mar 06, Virginia Strom rated it it was amazing.
Fancy Pantys , by Cathy Marie Hake. This was read over audible. It has become my most favored book. It's absolutely hilarious and filled with goodreads. I recommend this book to those of us who love romance but have gotten sick of smut. There is no sex but spades of romance and good clean humor. She dresses as a boy to escape an unwanted suitor , running to an uncle who she has met and assumes by her name, Sydney, that she is a boy.
When she arrives her Uncle is going to be absent for an extended period and she must maintain her discize with her Uncle's handsome partner. It reminds me of a good Shakespere comedy. I have come to love this Author and recommend any of her works. Apr 03, Tiffany rated it liked it. This was a cute story. I felt that the Christian element wasn't very cohesive. I enjoyed the story and writing style but to me I'd you're going to make the Christian part in the middle a major thing it needs to be brought out more throughout the book rather than just bits and pieces, then hit it hard, then end the book.
Als This was a cute story. Also I wasn't a fan of the ending with the supposed other fiance. Nov 27, Hannah rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Teens-to-adults who enjoy light reading and a little bit of historical romance. Definately a good read! I actually didn't like the second half nearly as much as the first, but all in all, it was worth it to read.
D I think Cathy Hake is definately a great author!! She blended the history in with the love story so that neither are overbearing, which I enjoyed.
Mar 10, Kelly rated it it was amazing. I wish I could give a book more than 5 stars! What a strange turn of events that led them to such a great ending. Sometimes God allows us to go through things we thought we never would have wanted. May 08, Tiffany rated it it was ok Shelves: I admit, I read this purely for the title. The first half was silly, but tolerably amusing.
The second half was, well, let's just say I'm all for inspirational Christian fiction, but I like it on a much more subtle level.
And if you have any hangups about traditional gender roles, then this book will definitely give you apoplexy. Mar 01, Eva rated it liked it Shelves: Recommended to me by a friend who evidently understands my reading tastes quite well. Oct 12, Heather Belleguelle rated it liked it. I think that the best way I could describe this book is "bitty".
It felt like the author couldn't quite decide what type of book she was writing. That resulted in a lack of flow, and a feeling that you were reading sections either from different books, or by different authors. The premise of the story was great, but its execution was a little lacking.
I loved the character of Sydney: The biggest issu I think that the best way I could describe this book is "bitty". The biggest issue I have with her is her name. I know that the author had to choose a name which could be either male or female, but Sydney was not a choice in keeping with the times.
Until Canadian friends of ours recently named their daughter Sydney, I had never heard the name used for a girl. I feel certain that a British aristocrat would not have allowed his daughter to have such a well-known masculine name, even if his wife was American.
There is also a glaring error relating to Sydney. She kept telling people that she was 17 and was expecting to reach her majority in January. It wasn't until and that the US and UK respectively lowered the age of majority from 21 to 18, so Sydney had a while to go! I found Tim to be a Jekyll and Hyde character.
He was supposed to be a lovely Christian man. He seemed to morph into this towards the end of the book when he started to explain the Gospel to Sydney, and appeared to read the Bible more.
In the early part of the book however, apart from the occasional prayer, you would have had no idea that his faith was supposed to be a central aspect of his life. The way he'd get really angry and refuse to listen to, speak to or be prepared to forgive Sydney just didn't tie up with the depth of faith he was supposed to have.
I'm not saying he had to be perfect - far from it! It just felt as if the author couldn't pin him down and make him consistent and believable. I must admit that I nearly gave up reading halfway through but decided to carry on. This review does sound rather negative but I did like the book and would give it 3. There was a lot of fun in it and some great characters, such as the Richardson girls.
There was also a notable lack of typos, which makes a very pleasant change for an ebook. I just didn't think that the book was well-written enough to make me want to search out more by this author. Jul 16, Erin rated it really liked it Shelves: Lady Sydney Hathwell landed on American soil engaged to a man she'd never met, who turned out to be a womanizing social climber.
Recognizing these traits, Lady Sydney seeks a way to escape from her impending marriage, and sets out for a distant uncle's ranch in Texas. He responds to her telegram having mistaken her for a male based on her name, and Sydney decides to change her appearance and roll with it.
Tim Creighton has worked at the Forsaken ranch since his life fell apart a few years earlier Lady Sydney Hathwell landed on American soil engaged to a man she'd never met, who turned out to be a womanizing social climber. Tim Creighton has worked at the Forsaken ranch since his life fell apart a few years earlier. He's none too happy at the thought of the boss's nephew coming in to shake up the order of things, especially after Lord Sydney arrives and shows how little he understands about western life.
Figuring he can teach the scrawny kid some things about being a real man, Tim works Sydney hard and begins to see some improvement in the kid's character. Sydney is determined to work just as hard as the ranch hands. After a few days of blisters and soreness, her willingness has earned her some grudging respect from the cowhands.
If only she can keep this up for a few months, she'll reach the age of majority and be able to receive her inheritance separate from any marriage stipulations. Specifically the woman of title he's already boasted about to his business acquaintances. Hiring a private investigator to help him find where Sydney has run off to, it's only a matter of time before her family connection in Texas comes to light.
Speaking of coming to light, Sydney's ruse can't last forever. Discovering she's female brings out a lot of different reactions at the ranch and in the community. Will she find the safety she needs from the oncoming confrontation, or will Forsaken's males-only policy leave her stranded and alone? Everyone needs to read a fun western now and again. Cathy Marie Hake has spun a laugh-out-loud story that is great summer entertainment.
Suspension of belief might have been pushed a few times, but there's pure enjoyment in stories that remind me of all the westerns I read in my childhood. I'd recommend this for anyone who enjoys the genre. This review originated at http: This was a really cute read. The story line wasn't my favorite to begin with, but once I just suspended my belief for a bit, it was good. There were a lot of hilarious moments, and the romance ended up being really sweet.
The Texas ranch setting was very well done. I really liked reading about the details of ranch life. I was intrigued by the discussions of women's role versus men's roles. Since Sydney "proves" herself as a man, Tim can't say that she is relegated strictly to "women's work," and This was a really cute read. Since Sydney "proves" herself as a man, Tim can't say that she is relegated strictly to "women's work," and I liked the struggle they had in this regard.
It was the most realistic part, and the feminist in me was really happy that this issue was discussed and not merely glossed over by Sydney returning meekly to her "correct" role. I didn't buy that none of the men would have recognized that she was a girl, especially since she was 17, not say, 13 or I enjoyed the story a lot more once the secret was out, and I thought it took too long to get there.
The suspense element fell a little flat too, and some of the plot felt like devices rather than a natural flow to the story. The spiritual aspect was a bit forced as well. I didn't care for the way that Tim handled Sydney's questions. To me, he sometimes came across as condescending, or more like a father-figure. Sydney's questions were worded oddly sometimes, thought that could have just been my perception of the dialogue in general. I've read a couple of other books by Hake, and perhaps this is just an author that I don't always "mesh" with, and that's okay.
I know she has a lot of fans here on Goodreads and elsewhere. I did like this one, and recommend it if you're looking for something light and fluffy in a historical setting.
Oct 16, Samantha rated it really liked it. Sydney Hathwell escapes an unwanted betrothel by disguising herself as a boy in the untamed Texas countryside.
At first she considers this a "grand adventure" only to realize that to maintain her ruse she'll have to work just as hard as the men on her uncles ranch. Tim Creighton is saddled with Syd "Fancy Pants" Hathwell, a spoiled good-for-nothing nephew of his ranching partner. While he doesn't appreciate being saddled with Syd, he's going to make the best of the situation and turn Syd into a Sydney Hathwell escapes an unwanted betrothel by disguising herself as a boy in the untamed Texas countryside.
While he doesn't appreciate being saddled with Syd, he's going to make the best of the situation and turn Syd into a decent ranch hand, and something resembling a man. Sydney didn't know what she was getting herself into, but does the best she can do, which is leaps and bounds farther than she ever thought she'd go. She learns about mans work and American Rules. After trying to track Syd down, Tim accidentally stumbles across Sydney, and the cats out of the bag, or in the bubble bath in this case.
Sydney quickly goes from "one of the men" and all the freedom that comes with it, to becoming a lady, keeping the house, and no freedoms at all. I enjoyed this book. I thought that Sydney was brave for taking her future into her own hands, quite out of charachter for someone in her time period and station. I always enjoy a good, old-fashioned, happy ending.

Aug 10, Lindsey rated it liked it. This book had potential, but I felt like it fell short. It is a little slow at first, but then it picks up and becomes interesting and funny. Sadly, the ending is very abrupt and a let down.
So I am mixed on this book. It is a cute story worth reading, but don't expect a page turning, finish in 1 day read. Apr 25, Brooke Barenfanger rated it really liked it Shelves: A cute historical novel where a woman pretends to be a man and pays the consequences for her deception. It's fresh, lighthearted and definitely not cliche. Not every woman has to be a schoolteacher, storekeeper, or farmer in every historical novel.

There are some very Christian themes in the end part of the book. I liked this one.
Which is pretty awesome and makes the setting just a bunch more nuanced and richer. This was a clean and sweet Christian story.
