Last Friday, a plane crashed shortly after taking off from the airport in Fort Lauderdale, killing 3 people and causing a lot of property damage. Apparently, the plane departed from the Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport, realized something was wrong, and tried to circle back around and land – unfortunately, this effort was unsuccessful.
The plane crashed within 2 miles of Peak 10’s data center in Fort Lauderdale. As a result of this unexpected plane crash, many people are raising questions about the location of Peak 10’s data center and why they chose to locate it in such close proximity to a major airport. Similarly, there are many other data centers all over the world that are located in close proximity to airports, including right here in Orlando, Florida.
