Farmville requires a serious upgrade in space

When you've become an internet giant, having just one facility in the works just won't do anymore. While they still haven't finished building their first data center currently under construction in Oregon, Facebook has announced today they will be building a $450 million data center in Rutherford, North Carolina as well.




That's right, Facebook will be on both coasts. The North Carolina project is expected to take about 18 months to finish once it is started and will employ 35-45 workers. Facebook has even planned for expansion, with the release also noting that "additional construction phases may be possible in the future, depending on business needs." North Carolina is quickly becoming a tech haven for the U.S., with Apple's 1 billion dollar facility almost finished there as well as Google and IBM's data centers already at work.
