In the late 1980s, a Frence insurance company thought it would deal with business continuity by building a 2-floor datacenter. Every bit of kit on the bottom floor was replicated with the same kit on the top floor. They forgot about floor loading and one day the top floor collapsed on to the botton floor. They did not go bankrupt but the French government made them sell the business to another organisation.
