Eco data centres

Cool post over here about plans to build data centres where good sources of renewable energy exist.

The theory goes like this;

  • Transmission of energy to a data centre located close to use = mucho expensive
  • Transmission of data via fibre from location of plentiful renewable energy = more affordable

It’s all about leveraging virtualization and smart cloud monitoring software to switch in and out individual centres depending on their current energy availability status.
