Following on from the success of last year’s Public Vote category ‘The Most Beautiful Data Center’, DCD have again opened the submissions for an award to public nominations – this time for ‘The Most Extreme Data Center on the Planet’.

Futuristic design, bleeding-edge AI maintenance, and bespoke power and cooling systems are just some of the innovative solutions in use at these Data Centers in locations that challenge our perception of the spaces - or Space! - where data centers can thrive.

From the very high up, to the bottom of the ocean, from urban towers to frozen tundra, this category celebrates the achievements of the pioneers and explorers of the Data Center landscape.

The Most Extreme Data Center on the Planet

From frontline duty on the battlefield to the far reaches of space, these facilities live life to the full, thriving in heat or cold, or delivering services from a location that no one would have thought possible - deep underground, or on the edge of space.

A public online vote will determine the winner of the 2018 award The Most Extreme Data Center on the Planet. 

As part of our campaign to celebrate the pioneering facilities in extreme environments, we are calling on the DCD Community to decide which sites look to push the boundaries of possibility.

*Open for Public Voting on 1st October 2018.
