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. These containers, known as IT-PACs (for pre-assembled components) can be deployed faster and cheaper than traditional raised floor data center space. The modular design helped Microsoft complete the initial deployment in Quincy in just eight months. Here’s a closer look at the modular data center technology being deployed in the new Quincy facility.
