Microsoft plans to fork out $230m to add a fourth mega datahall to its Dublin bit-barn campus.
The expansion was announced on Tuesday and will add a further 20 people to the 80 on-site staff, as well as create temporary employment for 380 building-related jobs.
The expansion will add around 169,000 square feet of IT space to the facility. This is a significant addition, and represents tens of thousands of additional servers. Microsoft is adding to the data center to support continued growth in services such as Xbox Live, Bing, Office 365, and Windows Azure, among others.
