When Servers Explode « Data Center Knowledge

An intriguing hobby and form of stress management…

We’re not sure who was the first person to intentionally blow up a server. But plenty of others have followed in their footsteps, including the folks at GoGrid, who recently blew up a pile of servers to draw attention to the merits of cloud computing. Here at Data Center Knowledge, we always seek to place these type of developments in context, examining  the associated history and broader trends. In that spirit, we bring you the Gallery of Exploding Servers, a visual guide to the sometimes incendiary relationship between man and machine. For those of you with weaker constitutions, there’s always the guide to Flying and Crashing Servers as a fallback.
