The Digital Economy and Climate Change

On September 26, 2013, eBay Inc. will open its newest and largest data center to date. Located in Salt Lake City, UT, the facility will be critical in achieving eBay’s target of enabling $300 billion in commerce volume by 2015. The data center houses some of the world’s newest data center technology from partners like Dell and HP. And as the first facility of its kind in the world to use Bloom Energy Servers™ as on-site, primary power, it tangibly advances eBay’s vision for a more environmentally sustainable commerce future.
