More major data centres are on the horizon for the Reno-Sparks area, and the next announcement to follow last week’s news from Apple is expected soon.
Economic development officials won’t disclose the identities of the companies that are seriously looking at northern Nevada as the home for major data centres — the huge bank of computers serve that host so-called “cloud” services — but at least one company may be very close to announcing its plan. And a couple more plans are well along, says Mike Kazmierski, president and chief executive officer of the Economic Development Authority of Western Nevada. The arrival of multiple data centres in the region would mark an important watershed in the development of northern Nevada — the creation of an entirely new sector that provides the basic employment upon which businesses ranging from retail to medicine are built.
