How Strong is a Shipping Container? A Fireworks Test Demonstration

For the 4th of July it was appropriate to have fireworks.  For those of you looking at container based data centers, you probably are wondering how strong containers are.  Check out this video of a test by 321 Fireworks crew shown in a PBS show.

The folks at Pyro Works have a geeky version of the test, providing more details and repeat the 12” firework shell test.

If you search on youtube for" “container test” you’ll find a bunch of different tests like a container full of fireworks.  So, for those of you who concerned about the strength of a container data center you can compare it to data center construction.

If you want to launch large fireworks shells as a test.

Happy 4th of July!
