Facebook has announced that it is opening a new data center in Ireland, it will be located at Clonee in County Meath in Ireland.
This will be the company’s first data center in Ireland and their second in Europe, the other one is located in Sweden.
Clonee will be packed full of cutting-edge technology, making it one of the most advanced, efficient and sustainable data centers in the world. All the racks, servers, and other components have been designed and built from scratch as part of the Open Compute Project, an industry-wide coalition of companies dedicated to creating energy- and cost-efficient infrastructure solutions and sharing them as open source.
Our data center in Clonee will be powered by 100 percent renewable energy, thanks to Ireland’s robust wind resources. This will help us reach our goal of powering 50 percent of our infrastructure with clean and renewable energy by the end of 2018.
The company had had their international headquarters in Ireland since 2009, you can find out more details at the link below.
