Impressive stuff going on here! I've always wondered what this kinda setup would look like!

Very nice video,

Thanks for sharing and hope that companies start taking PUE into consideration cleaning the wrong idea that it cannot be done without losing efficiency.

Complements to Google witch is on the right way.

I recall that Google developed heavily into solar technology and my only comment here would be is that you will definitely save on power consumption costs if you are fueling your database on solar. On the subject of renewable energy, I should imagine that if every skyscraper across America had a smaller wind tunnel mounted on their rooftops, can you imagine how much green energy that would create. You have the strong winds in most of your cities, why not use that again to your advantage. Build a small scale prototype then sell it to the world.
You would also sell unused power back into the grid and, that would compensate you for your initial layout.
