WikiLeaks now storing files in ‘James Bond’ bunker
“If Wikileaks founder Julian Assange is trying to turn himself into a Bond villain, he’s succeeded: the ongoing distributed denial of service attack against Wikileaks has forced his minions to move the site to a fortified data center encased in a cold war-era, nuke-proof bunker encased in bedrock. Really.”
A look inside the Wiki-Cave
Forbes has further details about the storage site:
“That data center will store Wikileaks’ data 30 meters below ground inside a Cold-War-era nuclear bunker carved out of a large rock hill in downtown Stockholm. The server farm has a single entrance and is outfitted by half-meter thick metal doors and backup generators pulled from German submarines –fitting safeguards, perhaps.”
The video, from a group called Data Center Pulse, describes the center as one of the coolest on earth and “fit for a James Bond villain.” A man who describes himself as Bahnhof’s CEO in the video says that the inspiration for the center actually was “science fiction and James Bond movies.”
Bahnhof did not immediately return phone and e-mail messages left by CNN.
