InterNAP == badass!!

I just got back from my tour of InterNAP's data center... oh my god! That place is the coolest damn thing I've ever seen.... you have to scan you badge and do place your hand in a palm scanner like 3 times to get into your cabinet in the server room ... and once you're in there all the lights are off and little round lights on the floor guide you to your cabinet, and the lights above your cabinet turn on. Everything's super redudant, the building is zone 3 earthquake compliant, the cabinets are zone 4 compliant (that's one big damn earthquake), and the whole place is built on an 18" raised floor, so they can wire stuff all over... customers can reserve the conference rooms for meetings, there are staging areas and cubicles to work on while you're there, a coffee/snack room .... very damn cool. I need to start looking into what servers I want to buy..... :-)
