In an underground bunker 100 feet beneath Stockholm lies a unique facility operated by the Swedish ISP Bahnof. It’s become known as the “James Bond Villain Data Center”. Dean Nelson of Data Center Pulse recently got a tour of the data center from Banhof CEO Jon Karlung, who provided a look at the many unusual features of the facility, a former military bunker designed to withstand a hydrogen bomb blast. Karlung has said he drew his inspiration for many of the center’s flourishes from James Bond villains (especially Ernst Blofeld), hence the waterfalls, greenhouse-style NOC, glass-enclosed conference room “floating” above the colocation floor, and blue-lit diesel engines (supposedly used in German submarines).
Here is the video tour of the Data Center. It is about 9 minutes long.
