Clean and tidy not like our average server room.

Tescos data centre is next door to where I used to work. They have some seriously cool kit inside and chuck out loads of exhaust heat. The only bad thing was their diesel powered back-up generator which belched out noxious fumes until it got warmed up. Got to go inside when we had staff complain about the fumes, they sorted it out but it cost them loads of dosh to fix it.
