Making the web more efficient, a thousand servers at a time

Gigaom: Peak efficiency at a webscale data center feels like a blast furnace. I experienced it firsthand on the rooftop of eBay’s new Project Mercury data center in downtown Phoenix. It was hot enough standing on a grated-steel roof with the sun beating down on an 86-degree day. Then I stepped into the hot aisle of Dell Modular Data Center and 1,920 servers blasted 115-degree air right in my face.
