Project Natick seeks to understand the benefits and difficulties in deploying subsea datacenters worldwide. We did so by designing, building, and deploying our own prototype subsea datacenter in the ocean, all in about a year.
In phase two we developed a datacenter four times the size of phase 1, with over 36 times the compute power! It was deployed in June 2018 at the European Marine Energy Center off the coast of Orkney, UK.
