google to announce new datacentre.
don’t expect it to cost anywhere near 150m
the very few jobs it will create on an ongoing basis will be small, relatively low paid and there won’t be much work in third parties coming out of it but there will be a huge amount of labour coming out of the building process.
The building my office is adjacent to is a datacentre which is being refitted at the moment and there has been huge amounts of expensive labour going in to it. On Friday I couldn’t pass by as they had the mobile cranes in.
I think the article overstates the competitive advantage of Ireland’s climate since everyone is migrating to low power hardware and low power hardware = less heat to disipate.
