Should data centers generate their own power?
I woke up this morning to clocks flashing 12:00 all over my house due to overnight power outages. Judging from the number of sites that I've had trouble accessing today, I guess there are a lot of data centers and server farms that have flashing clocks on their coffee makers at the moment thanks to power outages caused by the hurricane. What if places like data centers generated their own power, so that they wouldn't be dependent on the grid? I'm sure there would be added expense at first, but I would expect that to decrease over time, plus it would allow a shifting of expense away from backup power systems.
