Indiana University’s new Datacenter (the bunker)

I’ve been at the inauguration (dedication ceremony) of the new $32 Mio datacenter. I have to say this building is impressive for a data center and reminds me of my times in the German army. I think everybody would agree to call it “the bunker”. It is designed to withstand an F5 tornado, but it might also survice plane crashes or bomb raids with its three feet (one meter) thick concrete walls. The new datacenter is really amazing and solves all problems of Wrubel (some of us might remember some power problems ;-) ).

There is a nice vidoe at youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zdHvnt3D7Tc
