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

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

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.

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

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.
