Facebook plans Oregon data center
PRINEVILLE, Ore. (AP) -- Facebook has filed plans for a third data center in the Central Oregon city Prineville.
The Bend Bulletin reports the social network company has a 334,000-square-foot facility up and running in Prineville and a twin under construction next door. The third facility would be smaller, about 62,000 square feet.
The proposed data center wouldn't create full-time jobs. It would be handled by employees at one of the larger facilities. A company spokesman said a construction timetable will depend on the company's business.
