Thought of the day: Data centres = power monsters

Flippin’ heck. I mean really.

A 1 Megawatt data centre uses:

177,000,000 kilowatts per hour of electricity
60,000,000 gallons of water
145,000 lbs of copper
21,000 lbs of lead
33,000 lbs – plastic
73,000 lbs aluminium
12,000 lbs solder
377,000 lbs steel
32,000,000 kw per hour primary energy (Greenbang doesn’t understand this one yet – sorry.)
