Dublin data centre to improve Windows Live in Europe

with 5 comments

In a blog entry yesterday entitled Microsoft Brings Two More Mega Data Centers Online in July Arne Josefsberg, General Manager of Infrastructure Services at Microsoft, announced that his team were about to fire up a new data centre in Dublin, Ireland; the big switch on is tomorrow, 1st July.

Speaking about this data centre back in November 2007 Microsoft’s Vice President of the EMEA Online Services Group, John Mangelaars said:

Well that all sounds like good news. Over the past few months I’ve found myself getting more and more frustrated with page load times on Windows Live which seem, to me, to be getting worse and they wre never particularly speedy in the first place. The login process at http://login.live.com is particularly troublesome which often takes 4 or 5 seconds (an age in internet time) and which, in the worst of cases, sometimes ends up in what I can only describe as an infinite loop of page redirects.

Here’s hoping that we in Europe see a marked improvement in Windows Live services after this new data centre comes into operation tomorrow.
