Energy Efficient, Waterborne Data Center

Recently, Nautilus Data Technologies, based in Pleasanton, Calif., has constructed a waterborne data center.

“The production data center is under construction on a 230-foot long barge that will have 30,000 square feet of white space on multiple floors with the ability to mix and match rack power up to 60 kilowatts per rack,” reported.

The data center pumps water through a giant self-cleaning barrel to cool the IT equipment, and the company estimates this method will reduce energy consumption by 30 percent compared to a land-based data center, according to

“While a typical data center may use 130 million gallons of water per year, the floating data center from Nautilus won’t use any — it will all be returned to the ocean,” added.
