The Future Of Data Center Design?

I visited Laval University in Quebec, Canada, today and toured the nearly complete CLUMEQ Data Center. With an innovative cylindrical layout, CLUMEQ's data center will be distributed among three floors of concentrical rings as depicted in this rendition.

I don't want to give away CLUMEQ's design, but lets just say it leverages the fact that hot air rises. That, plus Quebec's low power rates and climate suitability for free air cooling all contribute to a very innovative design. Look for the center to open later this year and share more details.
