1&1 Plans Green Data Centre

UK-based 1&1 Internet, which claims to be the world's largest web hosting company, has announced plans to build one of Europe's largest data centres on a former (but never used) nuclear fuel facility in Hanau, Germany.

The data centre, which should be operational by the end of 2009, will house up to 100,000 servers in 10,000 square metres of floor space and 'like all 1&1 data centres' will only use electricity from renewable sources.

Whatever you think of nuclear power, that has to be a good result!
