A Peek Into The Tonight Show's Data Center
from the funniest-data-centers dept
We’ve looked at a few cool data centers that bring us speedy search results and crunch Avatar data. With the late night talk show gossip flying around between Jay Leno and Conan O’Brien’s contract dispute, it looks like the Tonight Show data center is also getting some attention. The Tonight Show’s systems engineer, Matthew Cooper, is presented in a short video where he talks a little bit about what he does in a very simple way. (In less than 7 words, Cooper says his job is “I like Mac computers.”) Interestingly, they make it sound like there’s no off-site backup for all of the video data that they store and process for the show. I guess if NBC isn’t planning to keep the Tonight Show around for much longer, then maintaining an off-site location isn’t exactly a high priority for them.
