We may be biased, but here at Digital Realty we see data centers as truly beautiful things. Like the first paved highways and bridges, data centers are seemingly unremarkable pieces of infrastructure that have quietly but completely revolutionized the fabric of society. In the same way that the interstate highway system reduced the time needed to traverse long distances in the U.S., data centers enable the global transfer of information to happen instantly, millions of times per second.
That’s why we were excited to see one of our facilities, the recently acquired Amsterdam Data Tower featured in Datacenter Dynamics’ list of Top 10 beautiful data centers in the world. The 13 floor structure has a striking contemporary design and boasts some innovative cooling technologies, as well. If you haven’t already, head over to DCD to check out this list of the world’s best looking data centers. Our facility is featured alongside a pyramid, a chapel, and an underground lair!
