Die NSA verbraucht in ihrem Über-Datacenter in Utah so dermaßen viel Strom, dass es dort zu Mini-Blitzen kommt. Seit letzten Sommer gab's mindestens 10 dieser sogenannten „arc fault failures“ und sie haben damit bislang 1 Million Dollar wortwörtlich verbrannt. Good.

There have been 10 meltdowns in the past 13 months that have prevented the NSA from using computers at its new Utah data-storage center, slated to be the spy agency's largest, according to project documents reviewed by The Wall Street Journal. One project official described the electrical troubles—so-called arc fault failures—as "a flash of lightning inside a 2-foot box." These failures create fiery explosions, melt metal and cause circuits to fail, the official said. […]

The first arc fault failure at the Utah plant was on Aug. 9, 2012, according to project documents. Since then, the center has had nine more failures, most recently on Sept. 25. Each incident caused as much as $100,000 in damage, according to a project official.
