Here’s a 10 min video from Microsoft describing the ‘Microsoft Cloud’ and the Windows Azure data centers – with emphasis on their modular approach, energy efficiency, and sustainability.
We also get a peek at the generation 3 and 4 data centers – this is where our bits run in the Azure cloud!
US North Central – Chicago, IL
US South Central – San Antonio, TX
West Europe – Amsterdam
North Europe – Dublin
East Asia – Hong Kong
South-East Asia – Singapore
and there are also the two new data centers “US East” and “US West”.
There are some great shots of these huge data centers, the size of 10 football fields.
