Floating Data Centers on Sea Cargo Ships

An internet security start-up reveals a plan to create mobile data centers out of old container ships. From the article:

It seems a company dubbed IDS is getting set to change the way we look at traditional data centers. The San Francisco-based startup is reportedly about to build 22 new centers, but rather than looking for unused closets and underground caverns to store hardware, it’s planning to erect said data centers on decommissioned cargo ships.

Wow, this is an interesting idea. It may sounds crazy but you will end up saving lots of money on air conditioning and other factors.
