      As Faceboook Lulea powers up, makes sure its neighbors don't put infrastructure at risk

      Part of what a big data center company like Google and Microsoft have learned to expect is that neighbors show up after they are the first to build.  Facebook going to Lulea was one of the first data center operators in the area.  And now that there are others looking at Lulea and Facebook is going through commissioning, there are concerns there is enough infrastructure.

    4. Europe’s Data Centres Hit By US Shale Gas Prices

      Europe’s Data Centres Hit By US Shale Gas Prices

      Data centres could move from Europe to the US, thanks to low cost energy from shale gas, according to research from 451 Research. Cheaper energy could also dampen interest in efficiency measures for large cloud data centres, the report warns. The US will have cheap electricity and prices will be stable for some time, thanks to the large-scale exploitation of shale gas. This means that data centres, which can use several megawatts of electric power, will be cheaper to run in America.

    5. Peer 1 Saves With Evaporative Data Centre Cooling

      Peer 1 Saves With Evaporative Data Centre Cooling

      International web hosting provider Peer 1 has saved 85 percent of the data centre cooling bill for its Portsmouth facility by using an evaporative system from the UK’s ExCool. The units use water evaporation to keep the new data centre cool even when the outside air temperature is as high as 34C, so Peer 1 does not need to use more wasteful mechanical chillers. The data centre has been open since February, and results so far suggest the company could get down to a record PUE efficiency score of 1.035. It’s ExCool’s first data centre installation in Europe.

      Ocean Energy: Eaton To Help Develop Utility-Scale Underwater Power For Navy

      Will tidal power generation ocean ever be harnessed to provide electricity for data centers? There have been a number of projects hoping to tap power from tidal energy or surface waves, but none have advanced very far. Now a leading player in data center power is participating in a promising project to make ocean power a reality. Eaton said recently that it will help develop an underwater, utility-scale energy generation system for the U. S. Navy. Built for the Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC), Eaton will collaborate with Eclipse Group and Triton Energy Systems on the initiative.

    8. Amid Scrutiny, Cleaner Generators Arrive in Quincy

      Amid Scrutiny, Cleaner Generators Arrive in Quincy

      It’s been barely a week since diesel generator emissions in Quincy, Wash. made the front page of the New York Times. That might not seem to be the best moment to announce that you’re installing 17 of the largest diesel generator models at a new data center in Quincy. But Vantage Data Centers and its vendor GenAcc believe they have a different story to tell. Vantage has opted to install generators that emit far less pollution than previous units, meeting the EPA’s most stringent standards for generator operation.
