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?
