    Microsoft Launches Project Natick to Build Data Centers Underwater

    Such a data center can be deployed in just 90 days

    Microsoft has just announced a new innovative initiative called Project Natick, whose main purpose is to allow the company to build data centers in the ocean (as in underwater).

    The Redmond-based firm says that building a capsule that could host servers and hardware benefits both the consumers and the company itself as it can help deliver services faster than before while at the same time keeping costs very low and offering rapid provisioning.

    Microsoft says that it has already started the research project with a prototype data center called Leona Philpot (as the Halo character), which was installed on the seafloor approximately one kilometer off the Pacific coast of the United States and worked from August to November of 2015.

    While for Microsoft installing an underwater data center is clearly a pretty good business because of the reduced costs, what are the customer benefits that Project Natick actually brings?
