I am working on the conceptual architectural design for a datacenter design. It is a rather large project (in the 10s of thousands of square meters of datahalls), and one of the sites to be considered for the datacenter has sloped ground.
I know this type of terrain is not ideal for a datacenter, however my question to the community is anyone know about any references to datacenters built on sloped ground?
I have been doing a fair bit of research, in particular on the many current datacenters using one form of other of free cooling and they all see to only be on level ground and mostly contain one level of datahalls.
