Facebook Plans An ‘Ikea-Inspired’ Data Center In Sweden

Today Facebook announced plans for a new data center in Luleå, Sweden—one based on modular architectural concept the company calls “rapid deployment data center,” or RDDC. One of the construct approaches, “flat pack”—basically a way of packing together the modular walls of a data center into easily transportable units, much like a box containing a disassembled bookshelf—was inspired by Ikea, the minimalist furniture and home accessory company that’s also based in Sweden. 

Sadly, there’s no word on the assembly instructions, which are presumably in pictorial form, or whether hex wrenches are included with every set.
