Chronic and severe electrical surges have compromised the National Security Agency’s massive data center in Bluffdale, Utah, destroying hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of servers and equipment and pushing back the compound’s opening an entire year. This is the 10th NSA data meltdown in the past 13 months!
According to the NSA, their most recent electrical troubles began with arc fault failures that manifested as “a flash of lightning inside a 2-foot box.” The repeated arcing caused fiery explosions, melted machinery and countless failed circuits. Not that we should necessarily trust what the good ol, NSA has to say though, right? Any electricians out there want to weigh in on this?
Anyway, getting to my point—the massive, crippling server meltdown. You know who that didn’t happen to? The Service Coach!
In fact, we happen to have just completed an upgrade to our servers that enhanced our hardware, software and overall security. We invested in a cluster of quad core web servers with a tier one data center and partner, LiquidWeb in Lansing, Michigan. Quad core is as fast as you can get in the server world and LiquidWeb is considered the best service provider in the industry.
If that’s not enough to get your inner tech geek excited, I’m guessing it’s far too late for you anyway!
