The company stated – “Project Natick seeks to understand the benefits and difficulties in deploying subsea datacenters worldwide. Phase two extends the research we accomplished in phase one by deploying a full-scale datacenter module in the North Sea, powered by renewable energy. This is the continuing story of Project Natick.”
 
Microsoft has spent years working on undersea data centers and this new installation will be deployed for around five years in the Orkney Island. The data center consist of 12 racks, 864 servers and around 27.6 petabytes of storage. It is connected with the internet via undersea cable.
 
Microsoft is now observing the environmental conditions around its data centers via webcams which shares the live feeds. You can check for the live feeds on the official website of Natick research.
