STACK Infrastructure has acquired a data center in New Albany, Ohio, the company said today. The deal highlights the strategic importance of Ohio as a destination for cloud data centers.
Amazon Web Services says it may build another 12 data centers in Ohio, and might add more cloud campuses in the state – if it can get discounts on power.
The center of the country is proving to be the ideal place to add data center capacity. Apple, Facebook, Google, Amazon and Microsoft are investing $11 billion in cloud campuses across Iowa, Ohio and Nebraska.
