Re: Datacentre - or Broom closet?

<quote>Off in the distance, in the middle of an otherwise bare floor, stands a single 42U rack, and as we get closer, we can see that it's partially populated. decades old, valve operated IBM mainframe in its rusting case.

Close up, we see a firewall, a switch, a few ethernet cables and a 2U server ancient green screen terminals, and old Bell 103 modems with "Web1" written across the lid in marker pen, under the dust. On the floor of the rack is a box of floppies punch cards, marked "backup".</quote>
