Powering Data Center Cost A Lot

This might be interesting since we’re in Lampung we run out power so that the light must be off almost every day now. Do you know how much costs you to power on data center?

The average data center uses the equivalent of about 2 tons of coal (or 80 barrels of oil) per day; a datacenter with 2,500 servers uses enough electricity in a month to power 420,000 homes for a year. A 30,000 square foot data center with 1,000 racks needs $4.2 million a year to power and cool the computing processing power you are using (including maintenance and amortisation costs).
