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

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

Green Data Center, Syracuse University, New York Built in cooperation with IBM and New York State, the Green Data Center at Syracuse University is completely off the grid, generating all the electricity it needs using a series of 12 natural gas-powered turbines. Hot exhaust from the turbines is used to heat water for an adjacent office building and also is used in absorption chillers in which heat drives a refrigeration system. That system cools water that is used to carry heat away from the data center’s server area. Battery backup can keep the center running at full power for 17 minutes, long enough for an orderly shutdown of servers, if that is necessary.

LIFEBOOK UH574

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

STYLISTIC Q702

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.

STYLISTIC Q702

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.
