Facebook is building a second European data center

Facebook is building its second European data center, in Ireland.

The company said the Clonee data center, in County Meath, will follow its Luleå data center in Sweden, which came online in 2013.

Tom Furlong, Facebook’s VP of infrastructure, said the new Irish data center will be one of the most efficient and sustainable data centers in the world as all the racks, servers, and other components have been designed and built from scratch as part of the Open Compute Project, a Facebook-led coalition of companies which aims to create highly efficient data center hardware which it shares as open source.
