Microsoft Already Planning to Expand Cheyenne Data Center
The company is now outlining an expansion plan for its under-construction data center
Microsoft announced one year ago that it would open a data center in Cheyenne, Wyoming, but the company is already outlining an expansion plan for the local facility.According to a report by Wyoming News, Microsoft is preparing a budget of $66.5 million (€49.7 million) to expand the facility, even though the company has already invested approximately $92 million (€68.6 million) in the North Range Business Park facility.
The current building would allow Microsoft to hire a total of 18 people for its data center, but more employees could join the company in case the expansion plan gets the green light.
The same source reports that another 9 workers would be added and, instead of transferring existing employees, Microsoft is looking into the local labor market to increase its workforce at the data center.
