Google Uses Sea Water For Data Center Cooling

If Google hasn’t spent enough on renewable technologies yet, get this, Google will be using sea water to cool its new data center in Finland. Redefining the meaning of water cooling is no inexpensive feat, and will cost Google about $260 million, bringing Google’s investments in renewable resources to over half a billion dollars.

The Finland data center was previously used as a paper mill before it was bought by Google in 2009 and will be used to fuel a large part of Google’s cloud computing division. As a computer geek myself, I have to say that this is extremely impressive and I am glad that Google is being the first to try it out.
