Whilst searching for something techy at work today via the Internet, I stumbled across a fascinating site for CIX.
It is the Cork Internet Exchange and they have blogged their planning and development for their new facility over the last two years.
Cork Internet eXchange is Cork city’s first professional quality, debt-free data centre, slated to open in Summer 2007.
It strikes me as delightfully Irish- they are doing it properly but they are very relaxed about it and proud of their achievements. Contrast that to the British approach- I once found that there was a massive Mobile Phone technical facility in Morley but it didn’t have any signage, I only found out when I hand-delivered something technical I sold on eBay. (They were pleased to tell me about it but there was no way I could have seen inside the secure areas without forms signed in triplicate by Vogons).
The best way to read up on Cix is to start at the earliest entries and move forwards by clicking on Next Entries > at the bottom. Enjoy the Craic…
