Microsoft to invest €98 million to expand its 'mega data centre' in Dublin

Microsoft has confirmed plans to expand its “mega data centre” in Dublin, investing an additional €98 million in the facility. The Dublin-based data centre, which began operation in 2009 with an initial investment of US$500 million, will grow to 415,000 sq ft and 29.4 megawatts of power, with the extension opening by year end.

The centre provides services to customers across Europe, the Middle East and Africa. It was the first Microsoft mega data centre built outside the US, and was designed to support the company’s cloud services. Paul Rellis, managing director of Microsoft Ireland, said he was “delighted” with the level of the investment. “We have evolved from shipping software in a box to customers to delivering cloud services and this data centre is the engine that allows us to do that,” said Mr Rellis.
