Now they have picked up 864 of them.

In 2016 and 2018, we wrote about Microsoft's desire to place servers underwater.

Now, two years later, the stunt is complete, and Microsoft states it is a success with a much lower error rate than on land.

"One of the biggest benefits Nadella points out is that the servers that will be shut down near the coasts will do wonders for the network latency for most people as more than half of the world's population lives less than 200 kilometers away from a coast," we wrote in 2018.

That was also the case with the error rate:
The fact that the process can go so much faster on the underwater method means for Microsoft that they can operate very quickly if there is a need for new capacity in a specific place. "

Much lower error rate underwater, but more research is needed
To retrieve the test numbers, air test tubes were inserted on top of the large tube. The watertight server bunker was filled with nitrogen while on the seabed.

Unbelievably, they found that the servers are eight times more secure underwater, meaning that the error rate is far less, but Microsoft wants to do further research, including how gases from cables and other equipment affect the machines' operating ability.
