KXAS reports on an AT&T data center that is referred to as this newfangled thing people call "the cloud". You get on those "computer screen thingy's" and what you see on your screen 'somehow' comes from this "cloud".
Title of the article: "Take a peek inside the AT&T data center that's home to a big chunk of the web".Whoa.... slow down there.... what's this 'web' thing, I thought it was about a cloud? How much exactly is a 'big chunk'?
"It's the electronic brain behind things like....."
I thought Google was our third brain? So it must be like the Wizard, behind the curtain.
"without it millions of businesses would grind to a halt. Millions of customers would be cut-off from services they can't live without"... as they show nothing but 3 different ways to check your Facebook page.
A prox-card to get in a cage? Man, here I've always wanted to be like James Bond and I HAVE been every day at work. I even have biometrics that I have to pass through!
"We wanted to show you the James Bond style door we passed through - no chance."
From the article: ".... so secret, we can't even tell you where it is. We can say it is somewhere in North Texas"Ok -- it's just a guess, but.... 900 Venture Dr., in Allen, Texas. Using the information from the video -- 8 generators and 5 chillers I go to this cloud thing and a map web site and type in "AT&T texas". I come upon a site in Allen Texas, turn on the satellite view and get this:
