Video: Data Center Floods in Istanbul

Security cameras at Vodafone's Istanbul data center capture video of the facility being thoroughly flooded during torrential rains on Sept. 9.

On Sept. 9, torrential rains in Istanbul,Turkey flooded much of the city's Ikitelli section. Among the buildings flooded by the rising waters was a Vodafone data center (see news mentions at Total Telecom and a Turkish news site). The event was captured on the data center's security cameras, and the video has been posted online. The video begins with a view from the security area, where a shallow layer of water is quickly transformed into a flood that levels furniture. At about the 6:15 mark the view shifts to the raised floor area, which soon takes on water as well. This video runs about 8 minutes.
