Yahoo's super efficient Data Center

By Eco Guy 11:31pm 23rd September 2010
Yahoo has been able to apply passive cooling and hydro-electricity to a data center to produce massive savings in power usage and environmental foot print.

See the original article here. The data center will only use 1% of its total energy budget in cooling, compared to the usual 50%.

From the design it looks like passive cooling principals have been used to allow the hot air to more easily 'escape' the building and hence suck in cooler air to replace it.

We hope this is a sign of things to come and other Internet companies will follow Yahoo's lead in being truly eco friendly in action.

Well done Yahoo!
