I've recently been working with someone, who has contacts with a company in Russia. They've been putting servers in a local server farm. I as a computer consultant was highly alarmed by what I saw. These servers have special cards in them which allow anyone with the right information to reload these servers from scratch without being physically present. I wondered why this Russian company needed something like this in the US. What if the Russians are planning to use these machines and others spread throught the contry on the backbones to take down the US internet in some form or attack? This company wanted to put in 10 racks of the 1U custom servers. That is a LOT of servers. Just one of these servers could support most small companies with less than 500 employees.
