Data Center Time Capsule

A Boing Boing reader found old photographs of his data center is a closet of the same data center and send to in to Boing Boing: Boing Boing: Found computer photos from the '60s

What strikes me is not how different the data center looks, but how familiar it looks. My last job was working in a large data center on a big government contract. The raised floor brings back some memories. I wish all server rooms had them. Sadly the contract I worked on was still using some reel-to-reel drives like the ones pictured.

The only big difference between the data center of the today and the data center of yesterday is the big iron has gotten smaller replace mainly by server racks and mass storage boxes.
