Gathering DataCenter Ideas

I've been gathering ideas for improving the security of the new datacenter and found a wealth of information today in a Digg post. Here's a few examples:

http://www.havenco.com/
http://www.cyberbunker.com/
http://www.infobunker.com/

Interesting reading, and most of the benefits of these places are already in place here, we have thick stone walls, generators, more guards than you can shake a stick at, and we even have the advantages of Havenco: operations in an area unencumbered by government (of course we have government agents constantly trying to infiltrate our base of operations, but at least we answer to nobody).

On my breaks I have been doing some walking and have found a nice candidate for the new server room, a 100 square metre hollow at the end of a tunnel that comes off of the lower break room in section 7. It looks like it was being used to store old building supplies.

I have a crew working on tracking the paths of some vent holes leading out from the chamber, with some luck we should see one head outside for heat venting while the others can be used to get some power and network out to the rest of the place without running it down the tunnel. If all else fails some drilling should provide what we need.

Getting a raised floor working in such an oddly shaped room should also be interesting, I may just run cable in tracks suspended from the ceiling and get concrete poured in to level the floor.

i'd be careful about that end of the tunnel - that sounds like it's possible that it's a false end and there's a secret room there somewhere.

That, in and of itself isn't a bad thing, but it means that it's possible there are potential security risks there.

Hmm, not sure I was clear here, the secret room at the end of the tunnel is where I plan to house the servers. There are small vent holes leading off to who knows where, but the holes are only a few inches round.

Very amusing Mr. Bond... Very Amusing. However now that you have let it out in the open that we work together, I shall have to invoke section 7 paragraph C from the bylaws of the Guild of Malicious Intent. Prepare to be invaded, your assets frozen, all ties severed with your organization, and have your fridge door left open right after you buy a new jug of milk and some cheese.

Have a nice day.
