Facebook Is Planning For A Data Centre in Ireland

Facebook plans to open a new data centre in Ireland, the social network said, becoming the latest technology giant to set up an energy efficient centre in Ireland’s recovering economy.

Ireland is fast becoming a cloud hub helped by its temperate climate and the presence of many of the biggest internet companies, which have been attracted by the country’s low corporate tax rate.

Facebook said it had applied for planning permission to build the centre, which, after Sweden, is its second in Europe for housing computers that run cloud computing services, where users store data on secure servers instead of their own network or computer.
