I was showing a friend this weekend how I blog and at the time I was writing about Russia’s Hyrdroelectric capacity.
Checking my web stats I saw hits from http://gigaom.com/2008/07/27/russia-data-centers/, and it turns out GigaOm’s Om Malik linked to my entry.
Russia, The Final Frontier For Data Centers?

To paraphrase (and mangle) StarTrek’s famous tagline: Can Russia be the place where Internet companies boldly go looking for the final frontier of data centers? At least one blog thinks so, and it points to the massive hydroelectric power capacity on tap in Russia. An article in this week’s The Economist points to RusHydro, a Russian company with the capacity to produce 25 gigawatts of electricity.
