Underwater Azure Datacenter with Project Natick

Microsoft Project Natick is an innovative research project to discover new ways of hosting datacenters underwater. The goal of this research project is to determine the feasibility of subsea datacenters powered by offshore, renewable energy. Since 50% of the Earths population lives near the coast, this has potential to host data and compute capacity for Cloud computing much closer to customers and end users. There are also some other benefits as well.
