Why do I care about a server room?
Have you ever had one of those work days where you've been using your brain non-stop and you need a few minutes to decompress and step back from your tasks to reboot? That's what The Server Room is for. As the first of Citrix's secret spaces, The Server Room is really a front for a chill-out zone on the Citrix Santa Clara campus.
To visitors and new employees, the space looks like many other computer closets. A bay of computers and blinking lights behind glass, swathed in drab white paint with a terminal at one end of a narrow room. You might walk by it a hundred times without even knowing the secret.
But if you know the code (or the right people), you can gain access to one of the coolest places at Citrix. A small space that serves as a decompression chamber for creative minds. No computers, no phones, no meetings. Come in and sketch, read or even grab a beer with co-workers.
