Submission + - Wikia Search to Launch From Iowa Data Bunker (

miller60 writes: "The new Wikia Search, which launches tomorrow, is being hosted in an underground data bunker in Iowa, far from the traditional Internet hosting hubs in Silicon Valley or northern Virginia. The open source search engine has been in the works since Wikia acquired Grub last July, and is being led by Jabber developer Jeremie Miller. Wikia Search becomes the latest project to opt for ultra-secure hosting in nuke-proof subterranean data centers, often housed in former mines or old military communications facilities or missile silos. While its back-end servers are in central Iowa, Wikia Search will use content delivery networks to support N an expected surge of traffic upon its launch."
