Inside Yahoo’s ‘Chicken Coop’ Data Center

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.

See our Green Data Center Channel for more on efficiency and energy-aware design. For additional video, check out our DCK video archive and the Data Center Videos channel on YouTube.
