Secret Amazon Data Center Gives Nod to Seinfeld

On October 11, 2018, WikiLeaks published AmazonAtlas, a 20-page document from late 2015 containing the addresses and operational details for more than 100 of Amazon’s data centers, one of which indicates an affinity for the comedy of Jerry Seinfeld. In addition to revealing the information about the data centers, located in 15 cities across nine countries, WikiLeaks also created a map showing the exact locations of the centers. A center in Manassas, Virginia, operates under the pseudonym Vandalay Industries, a fictitious latex company made famous in a Seinfeld episode when an unemployed George Costanza assured the unemployment office that he was on the verge of landing a job.
