+ - Iceland woos data centres as power costs soar

call-me-kenneth (1249496) writes "Business Week covers the soaring demand for power and cooling capacity in data centres — electricty consumption for US data centres more than doubled between 2000 and 2006. Among the other stats: for every $1 spent on computing equipment in data centers, an additional 50 cents is spent each year to power and cool them; and half the electricity used goes on cooling. Iceland, with it's cool climate and cheap power galore, is courting big users like Google and Microsoft as a future DC location. (Can't help thinking they're gonna need a bigger cable first, though...)"
