Comments Off on Abandoned Mines Make the Perfect Homes for Eco-Friendly Data Centers

Underground clouds? Welcome to the future – data centers are starting to look at abandoned limestone mines as potential locations to expand their computing power. Aggregate Research reports that security and cost-effectiveness are primary goals for data centers – and unlike standard locations in urban centers, mines offer plenty in the way of both: they’re immune to extreme weather, and have consistent temperatures in the mid 50F range, along with consistent humidity. Old mines also often have lakes or aquifers in their lower reaches which can provide an economical and eco-friendly way to keep servers cool – a key consideration for data centers . Add the security that comes from having a single entrance and throw in plentiful electrical power leftover from the mine, and you have pretty much the perfect space for a data center to operate.
