Essentially, datacenters are in place to ensure that the company is able to deliver Azure, Office 365, and Dynamics 365, along with enterprise-grade reliability and performance combined with data residency. Microsoft has been making considerable strides to ensure that it is hitting these goals, which is why it has been taking elaborate measures to ensure that it’s optimizing efficiency in the datacenters.
Though the process has not been a clear path, we have seen a hold being placed on two of its new Irish datacenters because Ireland’s state-owned electrical utility provider was having a hard time keeping the lights on with its existing datacenters.
However, things have since gotten back on track and Microsoft has now acquired Fungible in a bid to accelerate innovation in its datacenters to build further upon its premise of enhancing efficiency.
The acquisition of Fungible, an organization that majors in composable infrastructure will help Microsoft boost networking as well as storage performance in datacenters “with high-efficiency, low-power data processing units (DPUs).”
What’s more, this acquisition goes a long way to show Microsoft’s investment and dedication to ensuring that its datacenters are functioning at an optimum level. This is because latency, offloading, and server density will ultimately be improved across the datacenters which will in turn significantly cut down the cost implication the company incurs.
