Companies like Microsoft and Google are searching for better solutions for the geometrical increase in the volume of data transmissions demanded by their consumers. They are using more hardwares, and more energy to maintain their services. The by-product of it is the excessive heat to be removed.

Microsoft, now tries to solve that unwanted heat created by the data centers with a different strategy. Instead of using a cooling system running with liquid nitrogene, they are dipping their data centers into the ocean in steel tubes.

They are also planning to produce the required energy by the data centers using some off-shore power generators.

They hope that it will help somewhat for the global warming problems.

Maybe there are some cool solutions for our future under the depths of the oceans. Who knows?

Super-fast 5G Internet by Solar Powered Drones

In an article by BEC Crew in ScienceAlert.com it is said that Google is working on a secret project codenamed Skybender.

Super-fast 5G Internet

In the project a data transmission 40 times faster than the fastest wireless services is aimed.

The new data transmission will be made in a new spectrum with millimetric waves which covers a frequency range from 30 GHz to 300GHz.

Test are being maintained already in New Mexico.

“According to Engadget, Google has permission from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to continue testing their drones in US airspace till July this year, at which point we’ll probably hear more about the success or failure of Skybender. Regardless of what happens though, we get the feeling that those millimetre waves aren’t going to be left vacant for much longer.”
