At the 6th Data Centres Europe 2010 Conference, Microsoft's Dublin datacenter received a prestigious award for being the "Best European Enterprise Datacenter Facility".

"The Dublin datacenter incorporates a free air cooling design and is one of the most energy efficient facilities Microsoft has designed and built so far. Beyond the dramatic reduction in power consumption, the removal of traditional cooling systems negates the need for a chiller plant, allowing us to avoid the typical consumption of around 18 million liters of water each month. This design shows what is possible when you innovate locally and design facilities which take advantage of the natural environmental benefits around you," stated Microsoft.
