FiFA.com is running its 75 supercomputer server farm for the world cup in Slough.
According to Matt Stone.head of new media at FIFA, “Slough was the natural choice for FIFA.com to house its additional bandwidth requirements. The state-of-the-art venue offers security and will ensure rapid delivery of the online experience to fans.”
Is he aware that Slough, which according to UpMyStreet.com, has over twice as many burglaries as the UK average – also has a rat problem? The council recently launched a rat termination programme…and as we know, hungry rodents often nibble through broadband links.
