Submission + - The Cube: Data Center Squared (datacenterknowledge.com)

1sockchuck writes: If the Borg had a data center, it might look a lot like The Cube, the new server farm for French hosting company OVH. The entire building is optimized for air cooling, with racks lining corridors along the cube's hallways. Air flows into the cube-shaped building, through the racks, and into an open central courtyard that effectively serves as the hot aisle. OVH, which builds its own custom servers, recently announced that it hosts 100,000 servers.
