The title may not be 100% accurate, but I just came across an article documenting a new patent that Google just won this past August. The patent is for a floating datacenter that is run on wind power and is cooled by the water. The implications of this are obviously huge and far reaching. To put this in perspective Rackspace which is one of the larger datacenters recently bought the carcus of a very large shopping mall to host their new server facility. These datacenters are huge power hogs. If Google can move these data centers off-shore (literally) and into the vast ocean while at the same time increasing their energy efficiency, there is no limit to their capacity. The article which can be found here is worth checking out as it goes into much more detail.
