Today Microsoft announced the launch of their premier flagship data center facility in Dublin, Ireland. This is a huge achievement in many ways and from many angles. While there are those who will try and compare this facility to other â€˜Chiller-lessâ€™ facilities, I can assure you this facility is unique in so many ways. But that is a story for others to tell over time.
I wanted to personally congratulate the teams responsible for delivering this marvel and acknowledge the incredible amount of work in design, engineering, and construction to make this a reality. To Arne, and the rest of my old team at Microsoft in DCS â€“ Way to go!
PS â€“ I bet there is much crying and gnashing of teeth as the unofficial Limerick collection will now come to a close. But here is a final one from me:
A Data Centre from a charming green field did grow,
With energy and server lights did it glow
Through the lifting morning fog,
An electrical Tir Na Nog,
To its valiant team â€“ Way to Go!
