Gallery: Microsoft's Dublin Data Center
Microsoft’s new data center in Dublin will power much of the company’s global cloud computing operation, while using far less energy and water than typically consumed in other data centers of this scale. We’ve put together a photo gallery offers a closer look at the design innovations driving its efficiency, including photos of the server room and data center interior and a diagram of the free cooling system. See our photo feature, Inside Microsoft’s Dublin Mega Data Center.

One feature baffles me – with overhead power, networking, and cooling obvious in the photos and drawing, why does the drawing show a raised floor approximately 3 feet high? What purpose does that serve?

There is no raised floor, it’s concrete

Currently I am carrying out a study with Dublin Institute of Technology concerning power usage in data centres and Lv distribution in data centres. It would be great to get some input on this Data Centre , such as planning for inrush currents , clean supply , and reliability. If there would be a chance of a site visit it would be much appreciated.
