New Data Center of Microsoft in the Sea
Under the water, Microsoft placed a new data center, in Scotland, just for one hope that it can lead at the level of different sites regarding the future aspects. Ultimately, the company focuses on the data center that is named as the Natick project. In future, it could be sold with the prepackaged data and sustainability of environmental impacts.
For this purpose, the Unit order according to size, which is quickly deployed? So there is no need for maintenance and it quickly operates through lights out in the sea. It will make a crazy set of demand that is incomplete without the years maintenances. Corporate vice president Peter Lee said the project Natick is quickly deployed just for the right operation.
The Natick project is containing 12 racks in which 864 total servers and the infrastructure of the cooling system. Navel group its French Company that is 400 years old are going to handle the submerging part. Mainly, the process of heat exchanging is used just for cooling down the submarines. In a flatbed truck, Navel group shipped to Scotland the whole data center. Partially, the data center is submerged under the water, also helping with cranes and 10 winches in one place.
At the time deployed, the vehicle went 117 feet down the seafloor with the help of remotely operated; also hold the grabber of the cable which contains power wiring or fiber optic. Once plugged in or grabbed, the data can work properly means it comes to life.
The moment that is joyful for everyone is when the data center slipped finally under the surface of the sea through slowly and carefully, said by Ben Cutler, who is the leader of Natick Project team.
Environmental research named the data center as the threat of latent environments. Subsequently, the improved efficiency has made an irrelevant source that will comes into demand. Back in 2016, a government study shows that the data center is using about 70 billion kWh electricity, which is quite equal to the 1.8 percent of the consumption of total energy.
In past, many criticisms were faced by the Microsoft company just for handling data centers. A standoff was faced by the Company with Washington, Quincy when only the energy point is used in the certain projected. Through this way, the new data center can offer some local politics.
