OVH data center, Beauharnois, Quebec, Canada
OVH has remodeled a former Rio Tinto Alcan aluminum plant to fit its model of running data centers with efficient heat transfer. The general plan is to have all the hot aisles in the facility back onto a central air shaft that carries heat out the roof. The company says it doesn’t need air conditioners because it relies instead on proprietary technology it designed. Hydroelectric power from a nearby generation facility provides electricity. OVH says the new center has room for 360,000 servers.
