The World’s Biggest Data Center is Underground

If you’re like most data center managers and work in a data center on the first or second story of an office building, imagine what it would be like to work 500 feet under the earth’s surface. That’s where you will find the world’s largest data center—housed within an abandoned mine in Norway. The Lefdal Mine Data Center, now in the process of opening, has six levels contained within the bowels of the earth. The chambers are 52 feet high, part of a gridwork of tunnels and access points. The subterranean data center will support up to 1.3 million square feet.
