1sockchuck writes: Jon Karlung believes that data centers shouldn’t just be cool – they should LOOK cool, too. His latest approach to futuristic IT is a modular data center designed to look like a space station. Karlung, the CEO of Sweden's Bahnhof, previously built a stylish data center in a former nuclear bunker beneath Stockholm featuring a waterfall, which has been compared to the lair of a James Bond villain. Karlung's new design features IT modules built from bullet-proof steel that attach to an inflatable dome for staff. “Containers are ugly,” Karlung says. "I think design is too often neglected in our field of business."
