Facebook Breaks Ground on 3rd TX Data Center

Facebook Breaks Ground on 3rd TX Data CenterThe data center, which will be located in Ft. Worth TX, is projected to create more than $500 million in capital investment within 5 years, along with at least 40 full-time jobs to facilitate its operation.

 

Construction on the first building of the data center is projected to be completed by late 2016.

The data center will feature the latest in hyper-efficient Open Compute Project hardware, and will be powered by 100% renewable energy, including the 200 MW of wind energy in Texas.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott attended the groundbreaking, and delivered the following remarks:

Facebook’s mission is to “connect the world.” With locations in Austin, Dallas, and now the new data center in Fort Worth, those connections are made right here in the heart of Texas. When it comes to doing business, there really is no place like Texas, and we are excited to break new ground with Facebook.

I want to foster a sense of community across the Four States Region, where we can get to know each other even though we might live 50 miles apart. I want to make sure the stories in each town are told, by the people that live there. That's Community Journalism, and you can be part of it.
