Nautilus Data Technologies is the latest company to pursue a water-based data center. It is building a water-cooled data center on a barge in Vallejo, Calif. and says it will lunch by the end of 2017.
Nautilus Data has been making waves with their plans to create a floating data center. Their data barges would utilize the water they’re floating on to cool the servers, reducing cooling and water transportation costs. Nautilus also promises faster delivery, with fewer permits needed compared to building on land.

Nautilus Data Technologies says it has developed a floating data center that can dramatically slash the cost of cooling servers. Is the market ready for the data barge?
