What Did Microsoft Retrieve From 117 Feet Deep In The Sea?

This is the scene as Microsoft retrieved.

The project Natick Northern Isles datacenter from the seafloor off Scotland’s Orkney Islands.

The center had been lowered 117 feet deep in spring 2018.

For the next two years team members tested and monitored the datacenter’s servers.

When marine specialists reeled up the shipping-container-size center it was coated in algae, barnacles and sea anemones.

Cleaning it revealed the familiar Microsoft logo.

The retrieval launched the final phase of a years-long effort that proved the concept of underwater datacenters is feasible.
