The massive datacenter which the NSA is said to be building in Bluffdale, Utah may already be open for business. Maybe not running at full capacity, but at least parts of it may already be sucking in data. At least that’s a valid conclusion that can be drawn from this statement by NSA spokeswoman Vanee Vines in an article first report in the The Salt Lake Tribune: “We turn each machine on as it is installed, and the facility is ready for that installation to begin,”
Ma’am, we hear you.
The center is said to be a bottomless pit for data, capable of storing all Google searches, Gamil and chats until Thy Kingdom Come. Fun times for Data Scientists.
