Default The most awesome datacenter ever!

The most awesome datacenter ever!

I came across the coolest looking datacenter today, and probably the coolest looking place, bar none, ever built (thanks to Royal Pingdom). It was built by one of Sweedens largest ISPís as a new high profile datacenter, and yes, itís under ground, made to look like Dr. Evilís mountain of extreme doom, with fog machines and all inside the workplace!
If youíve ever seen something youíve really wanted in your cubicle Iím sure youíll find it here. The workplace looks like a paintball arena, there are weird waterfall things, colors, lights, and of course itís in a cavern. I always thought Google was the best place to work, now Iím having second thoughts!
The place has backup power from two submarine engines, a ďsmallĒ 1.5 megawatts of energy are used on cooling the servers, and there is just so much coolness to this I canít begin to explain. Oh, by the way, you could supposedly hurl a hydrogen bomn very near the place and it would withstand the effects! Now thatís a safe datacenter! Take a look at Royal Pingdom for some pics and an interview the CEO of the company who built the place.
