There is no perfect location. Any common location has a certain level of insecurity. Im sure u could sneak in a squeeze bottle and spray equipment also. The point is, it is a relatively secure location, short of building your own facility or blding and manning it.

Even many military installations are open to social engineering. Paul is absolutely right, as a good engineer and customer, put your suggestions in the suggestion box. Or access one of their people on the list. I think Bill Norton is easy to reach by email and so is their CTO.

 Uh, yes. Equinix is a rip off in general. I got kicked out of Chicago
 using the side door. I was sick of the stupid man trap crap and noticed
 they had a door that was propped open in the back that leads outside. It
 was much easier to back the truck up there and go in and out. The whole
 thing is a joke, they spent a lot of cash to look good, but there is very
 little substance.
nevertheless PAIX hasn't made it to chicago yet, and equinix is quite
a bit more neutral than a normal abovenet/exodus/att/qwest/ibm/uunet
hosting center would be, and that makes them the only game in that town.

i recommend that you work hard at helping them fix whatever it is they're
doing wrong.  think of your work in that regard as a public service.
