Last week, I covered what is undoubtedly one of the most secure data centers in the United States, if not the world. But a UK facility, dubbed “The Bunker,” may give the Americans a run for their money.
The government-owned data center is located in Kent and sits 30 meters underground below a secure fenced-in area. Like the American facility, it features guard dogs, cameras, and armed guards. Routine patrols and encrypted keys are also used to prevent unauthorized access. Oh, and did I mention that the whole place is designed to survive a nuclear blast?
Triple redundancy ensure the power never goes out. Air-tight doors and thick steel walls are also present to prevent any type of electronic eavesdropping equipment from monitoring the facility. Is it me, or is the government a bit paranoid?
