The data center's main corridor is about three football fields long, connecting seven 20,000-square-foot rooms called pods.

Two pods contain Visa's core network, a third its corporate networks, and the fourth, development work. A fifth pod handles Visa's new mobile platforms, such as the recently acquired Fundamo, a mobile financial services platform. Two dormant pods await expansion.

Pods 4 and 5 are the brains of the network, a blur of hard drives spinning and fans whirring amid rows of IBM mainframes, Cisco Systems switches and EMC and Hitachi storage arrays. They're all connected by 3,000 miles of cable — enough to traverse the country. (Source: USA Today Tour
