    Thats why you should build your datacenter above sea-level with no basements and some Flood Control features.

    Tightly sealed conduits
    Moisture barriers on exterior walls
    Dedicated pump rooms
    Drainage/evacuation systems
    Moisture detection sensors

    The humidity sensors must be working overtime.

    I've seen this video before, I'll have to search for the thread because it showed where it was and even showed pictures inside before the flood.

    Oh My God... that's when you see people losing jobs and lawsuits flying... that's a real nightmare.. Imagine the power shorts they must've had when that started happening, the equipment damages... wow.

    I don't know why the guy in the film is showing them around, or who the guy with the camera is. I'd be so embarrassed if I were somehow associated with that catastrophe that I wouldn't let anyone see it (let alone film it)!

    no, but the cost of energy must be going up, they are even storing the water for cooling.

    Well perhaps they wanted to make sure they have fresh water daily.

    Damn, I thought I was being funny. Atlantis servers is witty, though.

    Our servers boast cutting edge technology;
    300Mhz Pentium 2 Processors
    32MB of RAM
    2GB HDD
    500KB per month in premium dial-up bandwidth.

    We also use Raid throughout the building to keep out those pesky roaches.

    Yeah I seen it as well. Only thing is, you wouldn't need cooling, there'd be nothing running to cool down

    Exactly! So this is actually a highly-efficient way to completely take care of cooling in your Data Center.
