Inside Yahoo's 'Chicken Coop' Data Center

If you're a regular reader of Data Center Knowledge, you've seen plenty of images of what the Yahoo Computing Coop looks like from the outside. Here's a video with footage of what it looks like on the inside.

If you're a regular reader of Data Center Knowledge, you've seen plenty of images we've posted of the Yahoo Computing Coop data center in Lockport, New York. But we've never seen any video from inside the facility until we came across this footage on YouTube from the grand opening of the data center. There's brief comments from politicians and executives, but also some views of the racks and aisles. This video runs about 5 minutes.
