Water Efficiency at Facebook’s Prineville Data Center

PRN1cooling 600x3For Facebook, good data center design is all about efficiency — how efficiently we use energy, materials, and water, and how they tie together to bring about cost efficiency. We’ve previously shared information on energy and materials efficiency, and today we’re releasing our first water usage effectiveness (WUE) measurements and information on how we’ve achieved what we think is a strong level of efficiency in water use for cooling in the first building at our Prineville, Ore., data center (which we’ll call Prineville 1 here).
