  • Zuckerberg’s message on facebook
I’m proud to share that Facebook’s sixth data center is now under construction in Clonee, Ireland. This will be our second European data center, after Luleå in Sweden. Data centers deliver all of Facebook’s services to you. They’re some of the most complex machines ever created. Clonee Data Center will be one of the most advanced and energy efficient data centers in the world. It will feature the latest server, storage and network designs developed through the Open Compute Project, and will be powered by 100% renewable energy. One interesting engineering detail is that we’re cooling the facility with outdoor air, but because this is near the Irish Sea we’ll be using an indirect air cooling process to filter the salt from the air. We’re glad to be investing in Ireland, to become a part of the Clonee community, and to continue building the massive infrastructure that connects our global community.
