  • He seemed like a lovely guy. I enjoyed that, thanks Laura.

  • It's always a treat to see some of the inner datacenter workings, and the future vision of the datacenter is certainly an interesting area of discussion.  Hopefully we'll see more of this type of stuff in the future.  Thanks Laura and Christian!

  • Really interesting, I love to hear how the likes of Microsoft undertake these projects and having the capacity to think and innovate to the next level.  I've often looked at those gas flares but never once have I thought about putting a datacentre next to one - great idea & got to be fun if you get to do it.
