I don't know about the wave power but the cooling power of the ocean or
sea 
water is pretty good idea to look at. 

And add to that the Container based DC designs, you can have a very
efficient 
Underwater DC. The only problem will be physically accessing the DC. Or
you 
can simply build your DC near the shore and have pipes directly to the 
ocean/sea(however this approach will not be as effective as an
underwater DC.


Truth of course being stranger than fiction, there WAS a data centre on
Sealand.
Sealand was one of the Second World War forts established on the sands
of the Channel,
which was later inhabited by an eccentric character who claimed it was a
separate nation.
