Dell Becomes Bitcoin Mining Data Center Provider

Companies often end up with more data center space than they need, sometimes following a change in strategy, sometimes after an IT refresh, and sometimes for other reasons. Dell has found a creative way to deal with excess capacity at one of its Quincy, Washington, data centers.

The company has struck a deal with a Seattle-based provider of colocation space for bitcoin mining servers who will offer space in Dell’s Quincy facility to its customers. Dell started accepting bitcoin as payment for products it sells through its website in June and will now also host some of the infrastructure that makes up the cryptocurrency mining network.

Smart move,no doubt more will do this to use up spare space

Looks like mining is going mainstream,this will just about finish off home setups

Sounds like a good deal
When there is space to spare and its not being used may as well utilize it for Bitcoins  Wink

Bitcoin ASIC has a three-year deal with Dell to act as an exclusive reseller of excess capacity in the data center, he said. This means the hosting company has 4 megawatts of capacity at its disposal.

Bitcoin ASIC does not focus on large “industrial” miners. Many of its customers are individuals with one or two boxes they need a place for.

Smart Idea can see some self miners wanting to put theirs in a facility if it scales is the question
