Blue Data Center Will Be Powered by the Tides

Scotland sure is making headlines this week. First, they're taking the lead on mapping wave and buying levitra without a prescription tidal energy, now the on line prescription for viagra country will be home to the first tidal-powered data center.

Tidal turbine maker Atlantis Resources Corporation and data center developer Internet Villages International have partnered to look here canada viagra build the Blue Data Center. The data center won't be a floating one, but it will be powered by the Pentland Firth waters. Atlantis' planned tidal power array for the area will supply the electricity.

At first, tidal power will only cover one-fifth of the data center's needs, but Atlantis hopes that if the first phase is successful, they can expand the tidal array to make up the remaining wattage.

As our lives become increasingly digitized, the energy requirements of data centers are rapidly increasing. How to convert them to use renewable energy without effecting reliability is a major issue. I hope this project will give us some answers and maybe it will inspire Google to get started on that floating data center.
