One of the most significant thing about having a data center buried eight and half stories below ground is that it produces a degree of invisibility. When you have that much rock above your computer operations, satellites can’t see you. Plus, since the facility is on private streets with on-site security 24/7, people can’t come and just drive down to the facility and there is no Google street view. Tying in to this visibility aspect come the technology and equipment needed to run the facility. All of our equipment to guarantee operations is located underground. This means it’s not only out of sight, but also out of the way of inclement weather. The equipment will still operate in inclement weather if it were above ground, but putting it deep underground adds an extra layer of protection and maintains the promise of 100% uptime guaranteed.
