I wonder what kind of buildings are less susceptible to these kinds
of problems. And is there a good way to test your data centre
to come up with some kind of vulnerability rating?

Would a Faraday cage be sufficient to protect against cosmic ray bit-flipping
and how could you retrofit a Faraday cage onto a rack or two of gear?
