Vancouver 2010: An Exclusive Tour of the Technology Operations Center

More than 100,000 hours of testing has been completed to ensure the technology that makes the Olympics tick will run without a bobble. Here's an inside look at this gold metal setup.

As thousands of athletes and fans flock to Vancouver for the start of the 2010 Winter Olympic Games, 2,000 IT staffers will be stationed at the competition venues and behind the scenes to monitor the technology systems and applications. This visual tour takes you inside the Olympic technology hub—the Vancouver Technology Operations Center.

The Technology Operations Center in Vancouver is a 5,000-square-foot facility that Ward Chapin, CIO of the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics, compares to a NASA command center, complete with big screens to monitor the events live and seats for about 130 people.
