Facebook builds first European Data Center in Sweden near Arcticle Circle
 
 

Facebook today announced that it will locate its third data center in Lulea, Sweden, which lies near the Arctic Circle. The data center is Facebook’s first data center in Europe and will serve more than 800 million Facebook users. The Swedish city of Lulea has the same latitude as Fairbanks, Alaska, USA, and is the coldest region in Sweden – a crucial factor since cooling servers is a major issue for data centers.

“After a rigorous review process of sites across Europe, we concluded that Lulea offered the best package of resources – including a suitable climate for environmental cooling, clean power resources, available land, talented regional workforce and supportive business and corporate environment”, says Tom Furlong, Director of Site Operations at Facebook.

Facebook is investing billions of Swedish Krona (1 Krona is 0.15 USD) in Lulea. The new Facebook Data Center has a size of 11 football fields.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
