Submission + - Google's Floating Datahaven (timesonline.co.uk)

PDG writes: "http://technology.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/tech_and_web/the_web/article4753389.ece has an article about a pending plan for Google to take its data centers off-shore, literally. By moving their data centers to floating barges in international waters, they are able to save money on taxes and electricity (using wave based power) as well as reside their operations outside the jurisdiction of governments. There is mention of hurricane and other caveats, but I wonder how they plan to get a bandwidth pipe large enough and still be reliable. Seems like a chapter out of a Neal Stephenson novel :-)"
