Microsoft Opens Green Data Center in Redmond

Submitted by on 1 October, 2020 – 4:32 pm
This week, Microsoft (www.microsoft.com) offers a new look at its 50,000 square-foot data center in Redmond, Washington, consolidating servers in the research unit of the technology giant and laboratories.

The announcement follows reports in July that Microsoft is building a data center in Brazil to support the company’s software, plus services strategy, expected to open in the fourth quarter of 2009.

The new center will support new enterprise cloud, computing platform, Windows Azure, which is set to launch later this year.

Located just eight miles from the headquarters of Microsoft, the Redmond Cordillera 1 installation for the first time online in early July and is poised to scale up to full capacity in April 2010.

The data center will reduce overall costs of the company and its carbon footprint of 12,000 tonnes per year by consolidating servers in the server rooms in many of its office buildings in an energy efficient building.

Although significantly lower than large data centers is usually based on Microsoft to support its online services operation, installation will remain able to contain the 35,000 to 50,000 servers.

Free use of cooling techniques, Microsoft expects that the facility will be able to cool their servers with the outside air to 95 percent a year.
