Data centre in a box

April 20th, 2010 · Posted by Skuds in Technology · No Comments · Technology

I am currently nearing the end of a novel by Cory Doctorow which at one point describes the data centre provisions of a fictional MMORPG company.  They had shipping containers kitted out with self-contained server farms which could be built centrally and then shipped out around the world to cool locations where they would be, in effect, plug & play data centres.

Sounded pretty neat, and then a few hours later I find that Microsoft are already doing it.   It suddenly makes the rest of the book a whole lot more plausible.
