With More Traffic, Facebook Plans to Double Size of Its Oregon Data Center [Inside Facebook]

Check the link below for more details on the facility

Having already started building a 147,000 square foot data center in Prineville, Oregon, Facebook is now planning to more than double the size of the facility, adding a 160,000 square foot building shell.

It just announced 500 million monthly active users, most of whom joined in the last couple of years, so the company is adding the server space in case it keeps growing — a likely event, although one that it addresses conservatively in a blog post on the matter from Friday evening. ”As business needs dictate, the shell will be built out to accommodate more servers.”
