Microsoft's Dublin datacenter to help take pressure off Ireland's renewable energy


Survey Results

...many datacenter operators said they were satisfied that they had more than enough capacity to cope.
Did they ask the Operators, or did they ask the BOFHs' Bosses? I don't think I could imagine Simon saying "We have more than enough capacity" - not when the over flow could be used sold to the Helldesk to charge their phones/laptops, or - better - to run the espresso machine, during a power cut.

I could see the Boss wanting to sell it back, and The BOFH giving him an example of the poor re-usability of electricity, using a cattle prod as a demonstration aid.
