An air-handling unit is lowered onto the top of an IT-PAC container, which is already pre-populated with servers, at the new Microsoft data center in Quincy, Washington.

Microsoft has competed construction on its new modular “cloud farm” data center in Quincy, Washington. The design of the next-generation facility is driven by Microsoft’s use of data center containers that come packed with up to 2,000 servers.  We’ve put together a photo feature offering a closer look at the modular data center technology being deployed in the new Quincy facility. Check them out at Inside ‘Microsoft’s New Quincy Cloud Farm.’
