The Bunker has one of the most interesting histories of any data center you know. Originally constructed in 1982 by Louis Kung (Nephew of Madam Chang Kai Shek), the campus was his residence and headquarters for his oil company. Originally shrouded in secrecy and armed guards most local residents were unaware that he built a 40,000 square foot nuclear fallout shelter next to the office building. The shelter was built to house his family, employees, and their families in the event of a nuclear war (which he was thoroughly convinced would happen).
The office building was built with some of the same construction techniques as the bunker. Once you visit the campus this is very evident starting at the bullet proof glass on the first floor and reception area. This 5 layer laminated glass encompasses almost the entire first floor.
