Microsoft announces plans for Cheyenne data center

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Microsoft Corp. plans to build another data center in Cheyenne, bringing its total investment in Wyoming's capital city to nearly $500 million.

Gov. Matt Mead on Friday announced the company's decision to start construction on the planned $274 million data center this spring. He says he's made growth of the state's technology sector a priority.

Redmond, Wash.-based Microsoft opened its first data center west of Cheyenne in late 2013. A company spokeswoman says she didn't have information immediately available on how many jobs the new center will provide.

Mead's office stated that Microsoft will purchase additional land in Cheyenne and plans to begin construction of the expansion in late spring. The first stage of the new data center is estimated to be operational in summer 2015.

Brandon Marshall, business recruitment manager at the Wyoming Business Council business recruitment manager Brandon Marshall says Wyoming's cool climate helps keep costs down for data centers, which require cool conditions for computers to operate.
