This question already has an answer here:
In world I am talking about everyone vanished but two people. Everyone just dissapeared, like no body has been left. I have them contact via internet but then I realize; there is noone to tend servers. So, I have to explain how servers survive. Electricity can be provided by water generators, but how long can servers last? They should be able to survive nature around them and that includes animals. let's assume satelites can relay inforamtion to wherever and strong enough to be picked up. Where should be servers to withstand year or more? edit:this question is not asking about how long internet would survive in its current state, but rather I ask how to arrange it to survive longest time possible. It doesn't need numerical answer, but place and idea. what materials to use? what type of drives? Maybe ones that aren't widely used? Where to put servers so they survive against elements?
