World’s Most Stunning Data Centers

Who says there can’t be any art in technology? Here I present, some visuals of the most expensive data centers in the world.
Pictured above and below, its the Microsoft’s top-secret data center – it surely is a piece of Art. Physically real, yet still beautiful !

Sweden’s Largest ISP:
This underground data center has greenhouses, waterfalls, German submarine engines, simulated daylight and can withstand a hit from a hydrogen bomb. It looks like the secret HQ of a James Bond villain.

And it is real. It is a high-security data center run by one of Sweden’s largest ISPs, located in an old nuclear bunker deep below the bedrock of Stockholm city, sealed off from the world by entrance doors 40 cm thick (almost 16 inches).

And here is what it used to look like:

Quite a difference, isn’t it?

Google’s office in Hong Kong

Google’s offices are generally extravagant, but the Hong Kong office is an exception. This one is just basically a normal office, with Googly colors splashed around for good measure. Usual stuff like good pantry and games are still there.

Take a look…

Preview Files using STDU Explorer

Scientific and Technical Document Utility Explorer, if you can get past the complex name, this surely will be a helpful utility for all of us. Lets call this utility as STDU Explorer.

STDU Explorer is a neat little file manager that beats Windows Explorer by providing superior preview and thumbnail options. The program is designed especially for previewing and managing  image-file formats such as .psd, .bmp, .png, .gif, .jpg, and .wmf. You can also use STDU Explorer to view Acrobat PDF files and DjVu books (What is DjVu?).

The file manager lets you skim quickly through folders with chock-full of image and PDF files. Finding the one you need is facilitated by STDU Explorer’s thumbnail previews, which you can enlarge, shrink, or otherwise customize on the fly.

The program’s preview pane is great for flipping through multipage files, and its familiar folder tree and Office-like toolbar simplify navigation and basic file-management tasks.

The only useful feature missing from this utility is an address bar for entering folder paths, but otherwise, STDU Explorer is a winner that works with all Windows versions.
