Submission + - HP's new data center cooled by glacial wind. (ibtimes.com.au)

Arvisp writes: The center would be situated in North East England near Billingham and utilize the glacial wind blowing off of England's North sea to lower temperatures of IT equipment and plant rooms.
The Wynyard takes in the cool air, filters it accordingly and collects it in the management system and is then forced over the front of the server racks before it is exhausted. The result is a hall with a constant temperature of 24C. When the winds become even colder than usual, the exhausted heat is mixed with the outside air to maintain temperatures.
