Microsoft has opened a new data center in West Des Moines, Iowa. According to analysts, the new Iowa data center is a feat of technical engineering. If you look at it from outside it is simply a normal location but it’s indoors looks mind blowing. The new data center is a sign of massive achievement for Microsoft.
Spanning across 200 acres, the new data center is one of three centers located in Iowa and built by Microsoft. If you look at the data of Vatican City, its only 110 acres.
Iowa is a nice place to establish data centers since the location is free from earthquakes and tornados. However, to prevent any damage caused by Tornados, Microsoft has established three separate locations. By building Mountain (2008) and Alluvion (2014), the current data center is built at an estimated total investment of $3.5 billion.
Codenamed as Project Osmium, the data center will bring in a total of 3.2 million square footage across the three locations. However, the new location will be completed only by 2022 in four phases.
To bring jobs and investments to Iowa, Microsoft is bringing in a number of incentives. The Redmond-based company will get a refund on sales tax paid for construction materials. However, Microsoft need not have to pay any property tax.
