Facebook : corralling more computing capacity in Texas data centre that will run on wind power

07/07/2015 | 03:28pm US/Eastern

FORT WORTH, Texas — Facebook is building a massive data centre in Texas to provide more computing capacity for the online social network's 1.4 billion users to share tidbits of their lives with friends and family.

The building in Fort Worth, Texas will span about 500,000 square feet. It will be located on a 111-acre site that will allow for further expansion.

Facebook Inc. initially expects to employ 40 people at the data centre, which will rely solely on wind power to keep its computer servers running.

It will be Facebook's fourth data centre in the U.S., joining others in Oregon, Iowa and North Carolina. The Menlo Park, California, company's only overseas data centre is in Sweden.

Rival Google Inc. recently picked Alabama to be the home of its 14th data centre.
