A NOC, or a data center is a large, windowless building housing hundreds of pieces of servers and networking gear. They make up the backbone of the internet, and they are everywhere. This is a collection of pieces about data centers, the labor therein, the people who work there, and things found inside of the howling madness of Internet infrastructure. It's a hard NOC life keeping the tubes clear and the data flowing.
