Datacenter is used to host server racks that you add to it. Each added server rack provides computing as a resource that can be used on your island. Computing is used in advanced machines such as robotic assemblers or microchip makers. It is worth noting that each server rack has its power, cooling, and maintenance demands. However, some people say that all it does is to persist and search in a vast collection of pictures of cats and memes - we were not able to debunk this.

The Data Center is a machine containing up to 48 server racks. Each server rack is able to provide 2 TFlops of Computing Power. A single server rack consists of 25 Servers and can be assembled instantly in the Data Center as long as there are enough Servers in the player's storage.

The Data Center requires Electricity, Chilled Water, and Maintenance III. An amount of them is shown following table and expression.

General expression

Chilled Water = (75/128) × (Number of Server Racks − α) / 60 Clock.png
α: truncates "0.15 × Number of Server Racks − 0.40" to integer
Maintenance III = (0.58 × Number of Server Racks + 4.0) / 60 Clock.png
Electricity = (40 × Number of Server Racks) KW
