  • Interesting but I don't quite follow the point. If the advantage is using the ocean water for cooling then why not build the data center near the water and pump the water through heat exchangers at the data center. It would certainly make maintenance much easier.

    @Jeff_Birt: I was wondering the same thing. Are we to the point where pumping water costs more in energy then the cost of pulling the Data Centers out of for maintenance? Here's to a cool future.
