Facebook Membangun Data Center Keenam di Irlandia

Mark Zuckerberg melalui halaman Facebooknya mengumumkan bahwa, Facebook kembali membangun data center, kali ini lokasinya dibangun di Clonee, Irlandia. Data center ini merupakan data center keenam sekaligus data center kedua di Eropa setelah Lulea di Swedia.

Mark Zuckerberg mengklaim, data center Clonee akan menjadi salah satu pusat data yang paling maju dan efisien dalam penggunaan energi. Mesin server yang digunakan merupakan hasil pengembangan dari proyek Open Compute Project dan akan didukung 100% dengan sumber daya energi terbarukan.

Fasilitas pendingin yang digunakan menggunakan udara luar, namun karena wilayahnya dekat dengan laut Irlandia maka udara tersebut melalui proses penyaringan kandungan garam.

Postingan Mark Zuckerberg

I’m proud to share that Facebook’s sixth data center is now under construction in Clonee, Ireland. This will be our second European data center, after Luleå in Sweden.

Data centers deliver all of Facebook’s services to you. They’re some of the most complex machines ever created.

Clonee Data Center will be one of the most advanced and energy efficient data centers in the world. It will feature the latest server, storage and network designs developed through the Open Compute Project, and will be powered by 100% renewable energy.

One interesting engineering detail is that we’re cooling the facility with outdoor air, but because this is near the Irish Sea we’ll be using an indirect air cooling process to filter the salt from the air.
We’re glad to be investing in Ireland, to become a part of the Clonee community, and to continue building the massive infrastructure that connects our global community.
