The asian population seems to pride on "smaller better gadgets" type fad.... The server was probably some new prototype about the size of a wrist watch ---- Obviously a wise crack but seriously, in this situation, how do you lose 1 server and only one? ...
In Depth: Simply, the organisation will not be operating from one server. Simply, the family of servers would share the same rack/room ???
Also, what about security cameras etc, It would be noticeable for someone to loft a 20kg+ machine out the door.
Nice find nihil

the prob with security camera is "most" of them set to lowest quality, u may see the figure carrying the server but hard to identify the person.

I've got an account HSBC. I just got all new cards because a local supermarket computer system was compromised. Screw it I'm going to see if they still make paper money and use that.

LOL.. for a minute here I thought it was this from Bash.org. But it does appear that they didn't have good physical security in place during the renovation. A rack server can be small enough to fit into a backpack or other location.
I think this just highlights that vigilance has to be on our minds regardless of what is going on. The reality is that one cannot trust anyone these days (unfortunately) and I suspect we'll see an increase in this as the recession continues and people look for ways to make money (the theft was probably to sell the server online at Ebay and make a few quick bucks -- I wouldn't be surprised if the thief doesn't have a clue as to the value of the data on the server itself).
