Located in Stockholm, Sweden, Bahnof’s Pionen is defintely the coolest underground datacenter that we’ve seen.

Two Maybach MTU diesel engines from a submarine are responsible for backup power supply. Together they produce 1.5 megawatts of power. The entrance doors are 40 cm thick. The place is surrounded with the granite and it just mesmerizes with its beauty.
