In a blog post titled, Luleå goes live, Facebook has announced that its newest data center in Luleå, Sweden, has gone online.
The anonymous blog post continues, “As our systems come online for the first time, we are proud to say that this is likely to be one of the most efficient and sustainable data centers in the world.

Not only is it 100% renewable, but the supply is also so reliable that we have been able to reduce the number of backup generators required at the site by more than 70%.”
