What is Project Natick?

You may have seen in the news recently that not so long ago, Microsoft was testing the idea of placing a data centre in a container 50 meters down under the sea, just off of the coast of California?

This prototype concept has been codenamed Project Natick, with no connection or meaning to anything! To find out more about what exactly Project Natick has been doing, the link to a short 2 minute video below will help and if you would like to keep up to date with the Project itself, the second link will take you through to the official Project Natick website.
