Cold War bunker turned cloud data center
Another innovation in data center design puts old infrastructure to new use. In this case, a Cold War bunker in Switzerland was refitted to hold Radix Technologies cloud data center. Dug into Alpine rock, this installation was built to withstand nuclear blasts and features steel doors and reinforced concrete walls. Pictured here is an access tunnel between technology corridors. This is part of Toby Wolpe's gallery, "Inside the Cold War bunker that's now a cloud datacentre," where you can view more photos of this former military site.
