A Wicked-Cool Data Center
Apart from the regularly scheduled programming, I thought you might like to see a very cool data center in Stockholm Sweden. It’s become known as the “James Bond Villain Data Center.”
Dean Nelson of Data Center Pulse got a tour of the data center from Jon Karlung, Bahnhof CEO. Karlung drew his inspiration for the design from James Bond villains (especially Ernst Blofeld) thus the waterfalls, greenhouse-style NOC, the glass-enclosed conference room “floating” above the colocation floor, and blue-lit diesel engines (supposedly used in German submarines). This former military bunker is designed to withstand a hydrogen bomb blast. This video runs about 9 minutes. Quite cool.
