Microsoft is using its data center construction project in Arizona – to host a new Azure cloud availability region on the US West Coast – as a showcase for both the company’s new focus on water conservation and the power of its HoloLens augmented reality hardware in combination with Azure.
Along with rolling out publicly an aggressive goal to put more fresh water back into the regions where it operates than its operations consume by 2030, the company officially announced the upcoming cloud region. The data centers are being constructed in Goodyear, a Phoenix suburb, as AZ Central reported last year.
