Microsoft has released a 3D video of the Project Natick underwater data center project. The video contains important clues about the data centers of the future.
Microsoft, which works on underwater data centers under the name Project Natick, shared a 3D video showing the next generation data center.
Microsoft stresses that underwater data centers are 8 times more reliable than land. To do this, the tech giant places 864 servers in the capsule containing some nitrogen and lowers it deep into the ocean. In this way, both the corrosion problem caused by oxygen and humidity is prevented and cooling costs are reduced because the bottom of the ocean is cold.
The underwater datacenter supplies the energy it needs with a submarine cable. Microsoft says the electricity used here is sourced from 100% renewable energy sources.
