Why is Microsoft dumping data centers into the Pacific Ocean?
In case you didn’t already know, dumping computer equipment into water is generally not a very good idea. This fact is mainly the reason why Microsoft’s dumping of data centers is so interesting.
Data centers are basically buildings containing various computer equipment that process all of the internet we use. With the increase in the usage of cloud-based services and various other internet provisions, data centers are in such a high demand right now. But the problem that comes with them is that they are so expensive to maintain. Not only do they consume a lot of energy, most of the energy they consume is spent on the cooling system that prevents the components from overheating.
