Microsoft plans massive new data center in Quincy, Wash., paying $11M for 200 acres

Microsoft has reached a deal to buy another 200 acres of land in Quincy, Wash. which it plans to use as a home for a new, massive data center. The deal, as reported by the Seattle Times and others, is valued at $11 million and believed to be the biggest in Quincy’s history.

The company already has one 75-acre data center in Quincy, which also serves home to data centers from Dell, Intuit, Yahoo and other internet companies. The rise in cloud computing is driving demand for more data center capacity, with Microsoft’s offer of 20GB in additional SkyDrive storage for Windows Phone users serving as just the latest example.
