1sockchuck writes “Iceland’s supply of renewable power has gained a high-profile international data center customer. Web browser developer Opera Software was announced today as the first customer of the Thor Data Center, which will house Opera’s servers in data center containers that can use fresh air cooling, rather than chillers (a strategy also used by Google). The Thor Data Center is located in Hafnarfjorour, to the west of Iceland’s ash-spewing volcano. Iceland’s data center operators insist their location represents no operational risk from volcanic activity.”
