Oh I get it the NSA Data Center is a Cloud and Clouds have Lighting (Arc Flashes) - Humor

ABC reports on the NSA data center and has a quote.

"The failures that occurred during testing have been mitigated," Vines said in a statement. "A project of this magnitude requires stringent management, oversight, and testing before the government accepts any building."

I was thinking maybe somewhere buried deep in the huge stack of requirement documents are that the NSA data center is a Cloud environment.  And, someone could interpret the Cloud as we need lightning.  :-)

Here is an Arc Flash Demonstration with sound.

With all this PR on the electrical problems that are a whole of people at the NSA trying to figure out what went wrong with the electrical design, equipment, and installation.
