Microsoft Datacentre team has made the following video tour of our Datacentres available for all to see.

In a few weeks time I will be visiting the Dublin Datacentre with representatives from JaNET and number of UK Institutions.  The visit will include a tour of the Datacentre which is one of the worlds largest and modern at 330,000 ft2

So that's..

0.56 x the area of the base of the Great Pyramid of Giza
5.1 x the area of a FIFA sanctioned football pitch

All under one roof and hosting the services which support UK academic institutions including Bing, Live@Edu , Office365, Sharepoint Hosted , SkyDrive, Windows Live, Exchange Hosted , Windows Azure and SQL Azure.

So if your interested in Microsoft Datacentre strategy and the understanding the scale of the operation please watch the following video and visit the MS Datacentres Blog for further details.
