naperlou, I completely agree.  I've seen similar things happen.  With the trend towards co-branding, there's more opportunity for theft or sabotage. 

For some, competition brings out the best in them.  They are driven to achieve more.  For others, it's easier to tear down the competition than to meet it.

naperloul, I'm intrigued by your comment. How did competitors' employees sabotage the equipment? Do you mean that employees of one company snuck into the facility of a competitor and sabotaged their equipment in the dead of night?

A critical need

As more and more data migrates to co-location centers it is important that there be more robust security in these systems.  I have seen situations where competitors employees intentionally sabatoged equipment.   This type of lock should help avoid such problems.

Sharon Glotzer and David Pine are hoping to create the first liquid hard drive with liquid nanoparticles that can store 1TB per teaspoon. They aren't the first to find potential data stores, as Harvard researchers have stored 700 TB inside a gram of DNA.
If you see a hitchhiker along the road in Canada this summer, it may not be human. That’s because a robot is thumbing its way across our neighbor to the north as part of a collaborative research project by several Canadian universities.
SpaceX has 3D printed and successfully hot-fired a SuperDraco engine chamber made of Inconel, a high-performance superalloy, using direct metal laser sintering (DMLS). The company's first 3D-printed rocket engine part, a main oxidizer valve body for the Falcon 9 rocket, launched in January and is now qualified on all Falcon 9 flights.
Stanford University researchers have found a way to realize what’s been called the “Holy Grail” of battery-design research -- designing a pure lithium anode for lithium-based batteries. The design has great potential to provide unprecedented efficiency and performance in lithium-based batteries that could substantially drive down the cost of electric vehicles and solve the charging problems associated with smartphones.
UK researchers have come up with a method for machining aerospace-grade, carbon fiber-reinforced composites, along with high-strength aerospace alloys, using an ultrasonically assisted machining device. It also works on high-strength aerospace alloys.
