Microsoft Testing Its new Under Water Datacenter

The tech gaint Microsoft is testing its new under water datacenter  YES you heard it right!! This is the innovative idea of microsoft that came from  a former Navy man who worked on a submarine and advice a idea to microsoft. After one year, they got agreed over this and ready to begin the build process.

 

Microsoft Testing Its new Under Water Datacenter

 

  • Quick Information :
  • Name of project : NATICK – The underwater Datacenter
  • Project starting Date : 2013
  • Name of Datacenter : “vessel”-Leona Philpot (why? check out down in the post) .

 

 

The project was started three years back , suggested by a navy man which Microsoft  named Natick after a town in Massachusetts.

The Microsoft Research team decided to name their datacenter “vessel” Leona Philpot. Leona is a character who broke her neck while diving into a swimming pool but she survived and went on to be elected prom queen while recuperating.

It took the Natick team a full year to get their experimental datacenter ready for the dive. For the previous experimentation  the Project Natick container,was submerged off the California coast one year ago.

In August of last year, it was finally submerged and brought online. Four months later, she was hosted out of the water and hauled back to Redmond for analysis.

So what is the need of getting datacenter under water?

So, the answer is quite obvious we know that a large portion of world’s population lives near the sea side. and sinking data centers may be a better solution for keeping user data close by rather than putting them into desolated place!

The datacenter won’t need any cooling mechanism to keep it working well. Although the temperature of the sea is enough to keep it cool. This technology will promote the use of green technology as well lead to produce green electricity from tidal wave!
