Cloud storage centers suck up a lot of energy. But when Microsoft tried putting data centers underwater a couple of years ago, it found the strategy greatly reduced energy use and improved performance. Now a U.S. startup called Subsea Cloud is pushing forward with similar plans. How much could underwater data centers do to alleviate emissions from our cloud usage? And what are the hurdles to getting there? Zoe Thomas hosts the first in Tech News Briefing’s four-part series on emerging climate technologies.

  1. Those data centers are not any greener, as they would have to dissipate the same amount of heat. It's simply cheaper to dump that heat in the water, as it has a density 1000 higher than the air, hence being just cheaper for the operators. The impact on the environment is the same, the only difference being that you need a cheaper cooler equipment, yet more special equipment for the underwater operations.

  2. have yall seen maxie reynolds? she was a underwater pilot in the oil and gas industry…. but she looks like a legit super model. it's kinda unfair how people hit the genetic lottery and also have the work ethic to boot, reminds me of super star athletes.

  3. Starting early is the best way to move forward building wēalth, invest-ment remains a priority. The stock market has many opportunities to earn decent pay outs, with the right skills and the right understanding of how the mar-ket works.

  4. And how would you protect those data centres that are underwater. Any country with a capacity to have a submarine leave a depth charge beside one could take out a whole system.
    This is reality. Britain has monitored many Russian submarines that follow the cables underwater.
    There are plans out there to cut off communication in the event of an incursion. They have been practising now you want to send a whole data centre underwater.
    Why don’t you just give them a key to the castle.

  5. I asked chat gpt the question many of you have, here is it's response:

    The total heat capacity of the ocean is approximately 3.3 x 10^22 joules/degree Celsius, while the total energy consumption of all data centers worldwide is estimated to be around 200-250 TWh per year, or approximately 7.2 x 10^17 joules per year. This means that even if all of the heat generated by data centers were somehow transferred directly to the ocean, it would only result in a temperature change of a few thousandths of a degree Celsius, which would be imperceptible.

  6. You can water cool data centers on dry land. Put the data center next to a large body of water and pump cold water into the data center and warm water back into the water. The problem with both solutions is warming the large body of water. Their demo was one cylinder. A midsize data center would be a hundred or more of these cylinders in one location all generating heat. A similar impact as a midsize electrical power station using the ocean or a river for cooling.

  7. Until there becomes too many of them and they end up heating the water

    Yes the ocean is effectively an infinitely large heat sink but we said the same thing about fishing the ocean. 200 years later we’re over fishing
