Facebook to open second data centre in Sweden

Social media giant Facebook is to open a second data centre in Sweden alongside its first, in Luleå. When it is completed, Luleå 2 will be one of the most energy efficient data centres in the world, according to the company, as it will be powered by 100 per cent renewable energy – mostly hydro-electric power available cheaply and in abundance in that part of Sweden. Facebook will work with data centre infrastructure equipment provider Emerson to design and build the facility, which will be located next to its first data centre outside the US, and its sixth in total.
