• New Yahoo data center goes green and cools with outside air

  • yahoo.jpg Yahoo’s plans for a new redesigning of its data center will help the company achieve carbon neutral status without resorting to purchasing carbon offsets. The forthcoming data center lets outside air cool the servers all the time. This idea is based on the design of a chicken coop and Yahoo is planning to get it patented as well. Data centers are very important but they are also high energy consumers which is making big software companies like Google, Microsoft and Yahoo are trying to design them in such a way that they are very energy efficient and less burden on the limited resources of our planet. The new data center is going to be in Lockport, New York which is just outside of Buffalo.
