Submission + - Air cooling planned for exascale data center

cweditor writes: The U.S. Department of Energy's Berkeley Lab has begun building a new computing center that will one day house exascale systems. The DOE doesn't know what an exascale system will look like. The types of chips, the storage, the networking and programming methods that will go into these systems are all works in progress. But what the DOE does have an idea about it is how to cool these systems: the Bay Area's crisp climate; that is, pulling in outdoor air.
