Stockholm's Pionen White Mountains

Pionen White Mountains in Stockholm is the home of one of the most intense data centers in the world. It's home to one of Sweden's largest ISPs, and the sci-fi decor is enough to make anyone feel they've been transported onto a movie set.

The Pionen Data Center was once a Cold War bunker and nuclear shelter; its code name from those days, Pionen White Mountains, is retained to this day. Pionen is located beneath 30 meters of granite, so artificial sunlight, greenhouses and a giant fish tank are all implemented in the interior design to simulate a more natural environment.
