The Magnificent Airbus 350’s Fancy Secrets Revealed

The electronics and computers that a computer needs to fly are not something that the average person would see. Most people would be surprised to find that some planes, such as the Airbus 350, have a whole server room beneath the cockpit.

The video shows how much computing power is required to fly this massive plane. We see a pilot unlock a hatch, climb down a ladder, and move the camera to expose dozens of rack-mount computers in the avionics compartment. Although the space is not lofty, you must move on your knees in certain parts – it is nevertheless rather spacious. Enough to make any system administrator nervous.
