Central Iowa is emerging as an economic magnet for high-tech data centers, state and local leaders declared Friday after plans were unveiled for global computer giant Microsoft to phase in a $1.13 billion regional data center over the next four to five years.Microsoft To Locate "Project Alluvion" $1.13 Billion Regional Data In Iowa [qctimes.com]
The data center will house servers and computer equipment to operate large-scale web portal services as part of Microsoft’s online services businesses. The latest project means Microsoft’s investment in Iowa is approaching $2 billion, surpassing Mid-American’s $1.9 billion wind farm investment as the state’s single-largest outlay by one company.

“Records are made to be broken, and Microsoft now has the record, so we’d be pleased to entertain the next investment that would break that record,” Gov. Terry Branstad said at a news conference to announce the Microsoft project.
