The Monolith is the large black box used to store the Redbrick servers. It is named after the 2001's Monolith. The Monolith used to be in the Journo Labs, but has moved to C214. Security is represented by physical locks. Of course, as Plop has pointed out, the machines can be destroyed easily "by pissing in the back" of the monolith. However, as all true Brickies know, the doors are of course completely, utterly unbreakable and secure, and cannot be easily removed. Honestly. (Although if one had lift keys, moving the Monolith into a van parked beside the side-entrance to the HG building might be easy.)
The other "feature" of the Monolith, compared to a server-room, is that it keeps the computers nice and snug and warm. No RB server has _ever_ frozen, or at least, not due to low temperature, anyway.
As of some vague time in Autumn 2000, the Monolith resides in the student centre. Upstairs in the student centre. And it's heavy. It is also now accompanied by it's sister rack, the Docolith.
It's currently lying idle in the equipment room, since someone nice gave us some pretty dell racks.
