The Seattle Times: Business & Technology: Microsoft is farming in Quincy?: "A few weeks ago, Microsoft paid $1.08 million for 75 acres, where it's building three structures totaling 1.4 million square feet. That's about the size of 10 Costcos.
Inside they'll hold thousands of data-serving computers. The industry calls them server farms, and Microsoft's will be huge, taking advantage of cheap hydroelectricity and fiber-optic connections to an Internet arterial crossing the state."
