Forwarded from: Bill Scannell <billat_private> [While I rarely post raw press releases, this one caught my eye only because I didn't belive it at first. So a quick call to the U.K. at 4:00am C.S.T. which oddly enough was forwarded back to the U.S. confirmed that yes, A.L. Digital has bought a second bunker, and yes its being called 'The Other Bunker'. Someone is going to owe me a beer for that phone call. :) - WK] -----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 PRESS RELEASE FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE AL Digital Acquires Second Nuclear Bunker Doubles Space Available for Security of Computer Assets London, UK (1 October 2001) ‹ AL Digital (Telecommunications), Ltd., a leading provider of secure computer hosting and owner of The Bunker, today announced the purchase of a second nuclear bunker from the Ministry of Defence. The terms were undisclosed. This second bunker ‹now known as The Other Bunker‹ will effectively double the space available for the secure storage and hosting of Britain's digital economic assets. Located northeast of London, The Other Bunker will undergo retrofitting before being deployed as a computer co-location facility. The Bunker and The Other Bunker were designed and built during the Cold War as physically secure communications centres. Both offer the ultimate in protection from a myriad of attacks including; crackers, terrorist attack, electro-magnetic pulse, HERF weapons, electronic eavesdropping and solar flares. The rate of firms moving into The Bunker has accelerated dramatically in recent weeks, creating the need for additional secure computing space in the UK. "Increased demand has caused us to move forward our timetable ," said AL Digital Director Dominic Hawkin. "The Other Bunker needs to be open for business sooner than we planned." The Other Bunker is scheduled to have its first client servers installed by mid-2002. The storage capacity of the The Bunker will be able to absorb the needs of the market until that time. ENDS About The Bunker and The Other Bunker The Bunker is redefining the market for secure hosting. The facility provides the physically secure environment needed to protect digitally secure data. All the encryption in the world can't stop a server from being stolen, sabotaged or destroyed: The Bunker does.
