Built in July 2009, The 57,000 square foot Redmond Ridge 1 data center is about eight miles from Microsoft's headquarters campus in Redmond.

The site was a cultural shift for Microsoft employees at the time. At the time each development team had their own server labs on the Redmond campus. Today cloud computing is commonplace, but this data center forced the teams to think and develop software in terms of remote computing.


17 MW of dedicated utility power with onsite substation provides inexpensive power
