Are Underwater Datacenters Possible?

 

Microsoft’s latest data center is located underwater!?

Typically speaking water and electronics do not mix, but with Microsoft’s latest endeavor they do. Project Natick is an innovative research project which seeks to determine if it is possible to power subsea datacenters with offshore renewable energy. This multi-year long study has attempted to prove the reliability of these underwater datacenters, as well as the effect they have on the environment. Project Natick theorizes that datacenters located in the sea will not have to deal with the same temperature and corrosion issues that on land datacenters have.

Project Natick is currently working on phase 2 of this undersea project. For more information on that check out https://natick.research.microsoft.com/ For more information on phase 1 check out the article below.
