Add Your Comments

Matt from SearchDataCenter has posted several videos from his discussions with Microsoft’s Mike Manos at the Uptime Institute Symposium. One provides a 3D “drive through” of an infrastructure model for Microsoft’s new container data center in Chicago, which provides a sense of how tightly packed the containers are.

There’s also a video in which Manos talks about and demos Scry, which is Microsoft’s tool for data center analytics. Check it out at the Server Specs blog. For moreinformation, see our coverage of Microsoft’s container initiative.
