Default Russia puts nukes into data centre

Eat your heart out Chuck Norris, Russia’s Tsar Putin is so tough he powers his data centres with nukes.

Despite Chernobyl, the Russians still seem keen on nuclear power and it seems that they are going to power a data centre using it.

Russian nuclear power specialist Rosenergoatom has started construction of a massive data centre that will serve an existing nuclear power station in the north of the country.

Once complete, the facility in the town of Udomlya could become Russia’s largest data centre, consuming up to 80MW to power up to 10,000 racks. A large data centre would be the perfect customer to burn through any excess supply of energy the Kalinin power station could produce.

According to Telecom Daily, more than 10 percent of the data centre capacity has been reserved for the state-owned company, while the rest will be available to commercial customers.

Rosenergoatom has offered Facebook and Google to offer space on the upcoming campus, in order to help the American companies comply with new data residency laws that require all foreign firms to store Russian citizens’ data on Russian soil.
