It houses everything from Live to Hotmail. Can you imagine a building 1.3 miles big? And its full of thousands and thousands of servers. He talks about effeciency for environmental reasons and how Microsoft is going green.

The story is too old to be commented.

They are trying to get beta testers though, got my app for MGS a little over a month ago in my e-mail.

That is a hell of alot of servers, lot of freaking maintenance. I can see why Live is so fast with its downloads compaired to the PC with just a normal connection. To keep the price down those servers have got to be striped down hotrods.
