 Another day, another $.5B data center...

Microsoft Corp. said Tuesday it will build a $500 million data center in Ireland to boost its services for tens of millions of customers, chiefly in Europe.

Microsoft said the 550,000-square-foot center, scheduled to open in mid-2009, will house tens of thousands of servers. These will be used to power Microsoft's Windows Live-branded products, including search engines, e-mail accounts and photo-storage facilities.
