Interesting update on metro-freight.
I had never even thought of it back when I was
trying to figure out how to move containers on
and off of metro-freighters, but ground-effect
lift of containers apparently works on smooth
When containers full of server racks are moved
into their server farms, they are levitated
using the well-know ground effect. A surprisingly
small amount of relatively low-pressure air
will lift a large surface and heavy weight. The
containers are then simply pushed into position
by four guys.
I have this on good authority from someone who is
investigating the establishment of a server farm.
I can't find it (quickly, at least) on the Internet.
