Microsoft’s Underwater Server Experiment Resurfaces After Two Years

comment : 8

According to  from The Verge, in 2018, Microsoft sunk 864 servers and 27.6 petabytes of storage 117 feet deep in the Scottish sea. Recently, the server has resurfaced and the company deemed their experiment a success.
 
Placing a data center at the bottom of the ocean would result in more reliable and energy efficient data centers according to Microsoft’s Project Natick team. This is due to the fact that on land, data centers run into issues like corrosion from oxygen and humidity and controlling shifts in temperatures. 
 
In the sea, they can avoid these problems. They are also able to easily deploy servers of different sizes near the coasts in areas that need them, giving better local access to cloud-based resources in more places.
 
With just one-eighth the failure rate of a land-based data center, the benefits could be huge!
