The Shutdown: Dismantling A Data Center

We've seen lots of time-lapse videos of people building server rooms and data centers. But here's the first example I've seen of a time-lapse video of someone breaking down a data center.

We've seen lots of time-lapse videos of people building server rooms and data centers. But here's the first example I've seen of a time-lapse video of someone breaking down a data center. YouTube user dragonfly5446 has put together a unique look at the decommissioning of a facility in northern Virginia with 300 servers and 40 network devices. The video was created by positioning a Nikon D7000 camera in high-traffic areas of the data center and setting it to take a picture every seven to 12 seconds. The entire process is set to music, to very cool effect. This video runs about 11 minutes.
