Irish weather enables people to build energy efficient data centres
Two guys(Tom and Adam) are building a data centre in Cork. To be honest I was surprised that Cork needs a data centre but apparently there is none outside of Dublin and some companies need to use 2 data centres that are at least 30 miles far from each other. The next thing that was kind of new to me is that you can build such a facility in a completely transparent way that your customers know exactly what they pay for. And the last but the least surprise was that Irish weather plus a bit of innovative thinking can give such huge savings in terms of power consumption. From now on if someone complains about Irish weather I will tell him/her the story of that efficient data centre. It might help :).
