Constructed 130 meters deep in a mountain between the glaciers in the Svalbard archipelago in northern Norway, the warehouse will function as Noah’s Ark in a possible global disaster. The open source code, 21 TB in size, has been moved to a coal mine near the Doomsday Warehouse in Norway.
In the Svalbard archipelago of Norway, there is almost a Noah’s Ark in the ice.
With the Global Seed Depot, it is aimed to ensure the safety of important seeds against situations such as war, natural disaster.
The region, which was built to protect plant species in the event of a disaster that will affect humanity, and which is also known as the ‘last hope of humanity’, now hosts 21 TB open source code.
Owned by the US-based technology company Microsoft, Github moved the 21 TB open source code to the ‘doomsday store’.
The ultimate goal of GitHub, which carries data to a coal mine near the Doomsday Depot in Norway, is to create the ‘GitHub North Pole Code Depot’.
There is no explanation for which open source codes are included in the backed up data. GitHub has also made no explanation as to when the process will be completed.
The ‘Svalbard Global Seed Depot’ was built as a shelter against the possibility of extinction of plants.
The structure, carved into a mountain and containing more than 500 million plant species brought from all corners of our planet, was established to prevent the extinction of plant species in a possible global disaster.
