Mark Zuckerberg: 5th Data Center to be Built in Fort Worth, Texas!
Mark Zuckerberg just announced the construction of a 5th, energy efficient data center in the world, will be built in Fort Worth, Texas! His Facebook statement below.
We just announced that our fifth data center will be built in Fort Worth, Texas.
Our data centers power Facebook and will help connect billions of people around the world in the coming years.
Fort Worth will be one of the most advanced and energy efficient data centers in the world. It will use 100% renewable energy and it will actually add 200 megawatts of new wind energy to the Texas power grid. It will be built using hardware designed and developed through the Open Compute Project.
This is just one example of new technologies we’re building to create internet services at planetary scale. We’re grateful to the Fort Worth community for helping to make the world more open and connected, and we’re glad to be a part of that community.
