First Big Data Farm in Scotland Planned for Ecclefechan

from the Sunday Herald
A decade-long campaign to bring the booming "big data" processing industry to Scotland looks set to bear fruit early in 2013 when a Scottish start-up unveils a "radically new" data centre model near Ecclefechan in Dumfries and Galloway.
The Sunday Herald understands that Scotia Global has signed a memorandum of understanding with one of the world's biggest electrical and electronics firms to build what is claimed to be the world's first "industrial estate" for data on 40 hectares of Dumfriesshire farmland. Details will be announced in January, with construction slated to start in May.
