Sometimes things get absurd. I our data center we had the usual separation units with key cards, finger prints, video etc. And this units have sensors under the floor that check if someone is inside. And the sensors have a threshold. Some day a guy that looked like John Coffey in "The Green Mile" checked in. But he couldn't check out - probably because of his weight. The security guys needed about an hour to get him out.

Best regards, Karl

    The office building, where I work, had a show case data center room adjacent to the main lobby, complete with large windows. When my current employer took out the lease on the building, the VP of IT decided to use that room for as our data center, partly because it already had the required AC and electrical, and also because the door was right next to the security desk. To get in or out, you need both a properly authorized access card and for the guard on duty to know and recognize you. (The entry is airlock-style, so anyone trying to exit that the guard doesn't recognize is contained while the guard contacts a higher authority. Also, the windows are now covered, except for the door windows.)
