itwbennett (1594911) writes "A massive data center being built by the National Security Agency in Utah, and which is expected to be the NSA's main facility for storing, decrypting and analyzing the vast amounts of data it collects through its surveillance programs, has been plagued by 'chronic electrical surges' that have destroyed equipment and delayed its opening for a year, according to a report Monday. The facility has suffered 10 such 'meltdowns' in the past 13 months that destroyed hundreds of thousands of dollars' worth of machinery."
