Server farms and restaurants

Giovanni

Several years ago, when I was working in my own company, I went to a server farm to install a couple of servers.

If you don’t know what a server farm is, let’s say that it is a place where to put your servers and where everything is optimized to avoid problems, including the temperature!

The heat is probably the biggest problem for a server, so in these places they keep the temperature so low that you need a coat if you don’t want to freeze!

Now do you know what is the only other place that gives me the same sensation of cold? A real American restaurant!

Last week I went with my wife to a nice restaurant (one of the best in Cambridge, according to TripAdvisor) and as soon as we entered in that place a polar wind attacked us and since we didn’t have clothes warm enough, we had to leave!

Now the funny thing was that it was not that hot outside.

Anyway… I realized that to go in a restaurant sometimes I need the same coat I used to wear in the server farm!
