Facebook opens second data center for $450 million

Facebook, the world’s largest social networking site, will invest $450 million in a data center near Forest City in Rutherford County, the second data facility that the company will own.

We are proud that Facebook chose to make North Carolina a ‘friend,’” said North Carolina Governor Bev Perdue in a statement. “The feeling is certainly mutual. You can’t pick up a newspaper, read a magazine or flip on the television without hearing more great news about our state. The investment and jobs at the data center will be a boon to that region of the state, and will help confirm North Carolina’s distinction as a global business destination.”

The project is expected to take 18 months to complete, and will have around 35-45 full-time and contract workers once it’s done. The statement also notes that “additional construction phases may be possible in the future, depending on business needs.”

The investment will be designed to meet “LEED gold standards.” LEED is a green building certification system that measures energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction, improved indoor environmental quality, and resource stewardship.

Facebook isn’t the first tech company to build a massive East Coast data center in North Carolina — Apple is building a $1 billion facility that is expected to be finished this year. Google and IBM also have data centers in the state.
