In Pictures: 10 more of the world’s coolest datacentres

From a repurposed chapel to inflatable modules, datacentres don’t fit the same mold

SuperNAP, Las Vegas, Nev. This data center run by Switch, a collocation provider, already claims to be among the 10 largest in the world with nearly 10 acres of floor space. Located in the desert surrounding Las Vegas the facility has extensive cooling systems lined up on the ground outside the building to carry off the heat generated by the 1,500 Watts/square foot of server power usage the center supports. 50 generators capable of 100 million Watts of power stand by if the power grid fails. The building is protected by a 10-foot tall blast wall and features white-noise injectors, steel-lined walls and radio frequency shielding to protect customers’ servers from being spied on.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
