Penguins demand Linux for Antarctic data center


One of our editors at SearchDataCenter.com created a Google map of international data centers to go with a story, but he was kind of “cold” to Linux:

So, we thought we’d ask some of our Linux experts for their opinions on the international data centers. Here’s what they had to say:


  • Pros: Central location, strong infrastructure
  • Cons: The French


  • Pros: Cheap land, cheap labor
  • Cons: Casual Fridays = mankinis


  • Pros: Low energy costs, cooler temperatures
  • Cons: Data center actually a zamboni. Still runs better than a Vista desktop.

 If you want to put in your two cents, email me.
