The concept is mentioned here, we already have some kind of datacenters with computing power in orbit. It is a great idea.
Moving beyond the cloud to minimse environmental impact
The commercialization of space is taking off.
On earth, data centers create a lot of environmental impact due to energy consumption.
Lets put a Dell datacenter in space where cold temperatures will provide cooling, and power can come from the sun.
While costs to get a payload may still be prohibitive, lets think exponentially. Non-latency data should not need to cost the planet to store.
Even the idea we are working towards it will be great!
