I've not looked at everything but I did find TK421.

Haha! NICE!

Now all you need is some way so you can remote manage it via street view.

"Okay... so you want me to goto cabinet X and rebootY? Done! I'm going back to sleep now."

We talked about using an AR Drone and setting it up to fly around the data center to remotely view your cabinet remotely with it's on board camera. We figured that the thing wold probably crash and burn when it got near the Lieberts.

That's the type of roof you will find in most commercial buildings.

There is more than just a layer of "tin" up there.

Ive only been in one datacentre that has anything but a tin roof. This one has a concrete slab roof. It used to belong to a bank before my previous employer took it over, so Im guessing they spent a bit of money on it since it also had other ridiculously expensive things like stainless steel and copper piping for water to prevent corrosion in the cooling systems.

Off topic: I remember the network ops manager telling me about the printers that used to be installed there when the bank owned it. He said "forget about pages per minute and think more in metres per second." Use your imagination to work that one out.
