In this talk I will speak about the secret ingredients of building a geek's dream. Can also be applied to non-data center dreams.
Assume that you are a hacker. Assume that you are interested in running big infrastructures for fun. Linux servers, network, hardware, various software stacks and so on. Assume also that even though you dream alot, you still want to fulfill the usual[tm] real-life constraints.
This is a real life story about living that dream.
