I need a suitable building to protect my investment.
I can't afford a dormant volcano or a top secret L33t Hax0r underground world headquarters. I must settle for a pint-size data center that can contain lots of hardware. I spent about £3,000 building and equipping a shed in my back garden.
In the future we are going to do a lot of work to turn a room into a data centre. For instance, we will make sure it does not turn into a computer sauna and it is not a favourite stop off for burglars. Our future work is safer if we first pick a suitable location for this room.
