Facebook Plans North Carolina Data Center | Data Center Knowledge
Facebook will invest $450 million in a large new data center facility in North Carolina, the company said today. The data center near Forest City in Rutherford County will be Facebook’s second company-built data center, following on the facility now being completed in Prineville, Oregon.
In choosing North Carolina, Facebook adds to a growing cluster of the largest Internet companies in western North Carolina, where Google and Apple have already built major facilities.
