In an effort to save resources and money, Intel is currently working on consolidating its data centers. The company hopes that instead of the current bloated setup, it move all its computing to 8 highly efficient modularized data centers. Each would house up to 10,000 servers.
Intel hopes doing this will eventually save $650 million a year. I’m sure its stockholders are very happy about this, but as for the employees working in these soon to be closed data centers, they’re probably a bit less enthused.
