Operating from a subterranean biosphere
Todd Murren spends most of his days deep underground, with no windows to gaze out from. He says that you get used to it and that the covered parking area is a tremendous benefit — he’s never had to use an umbrella between the car and his office.
Murren is the General Manager of Bluebird Underground, a state-of-the-art data center buried 85 feet underground in the corner of a disused 5 million-square-foot limestone mine.
We spoke with Murren to find out why the data center is underground and how it helps Bluebird Underground achieve more sustainable operations and lower carbon emissions.
