Underground Data Center (26 pics)

Pionen is an underground data center that belongs to the biggest Swedish internet service provider Bahnhof. It is located 30 meters under the granite rocks. It was built in a former bomb shelter, thus it can withstand a direct attack with a hydrogen bomb. Two Maybach MTU diesel engines from a submarine are responsible for backup power supply. Together they produce 1.5 megawatts of power. The entrance doors are 40 cm thick. The place is surrounded with the granite and it just mesmerizes with its beauty.

    For me it's normal. In Switzerland you can buy one for private. Lot of compagny have a data center underground. I've visited the Richemond datacenter, it's juste amazing. 15'000 battery and 3 diesel engines only if the power line go down!!! It's resist to an atomic bomb!!!

    I wouldn't be surprised.
    Honestly, I can't wait to see WikiLeak to get torn apart. The person who made that has killed quite a few people.
    Anyways, THIS PLACE LOOKS AWESOME. HOORAY.

    Wikileaks ARE hosted by Banhof. And in the rest of the free world the actions of the elected leader are to be open to the public. The public who elected them.
    America is more corrupted then the old soviet. I have been in both places and I can say that I felt both safer and freer in Russia.
    Wikileaks is the best thing ever happened to safety of the citizens of the world.
    Americans are just a small piece and its a pretty ugly and smelly piece.
    If a few solders somewhere have to loose their lives so the truth will come out then so be it.
