Facebook To Build New Data Centre In Co Meath

Tom Furlong, VP, Infrastructure, said it will be packed full of cutting-edge technology.

He said: "All the racks, servers, and other components have been designed and built from scratch as part of the Open Compute Project, an industry-wide coalition of companies dedicated to creating energy- and cost-efficient infrastructure solutions and sharing them as open source.

"Our data center in Clonee will be powered by 100% renewable energy, thanks to Ireland's robust wind resources. This will help us reach our goal of powering 50 percent of our infrastructure with clean and renewable energy by the end of 2018."
