Facebook will spend $750 million on a new data center in central Ohio, the company announced Tuesday — marking another boost for the state’s growing technology sector.The world’s biggest social media company joined Republican Gov. John Kasich and a host of other dignitaries to announce that its 10th data center will be in New Albany, just northeast of Columbus.The 22-acre data center will be powered exclusively by renewable energy.Rachel Peterson, the Menlo Park company’s director of data center strategy and development, said several factors attracted Facebook to the location, including fiber and power infrastructure, government support, livability and the availability of high-tech talent.Facebook has been adding data centers in the U.S. and internationally to handle the growing number of photos, videos and additional digital content it must process from its 2 billion users.The Ohio project was code-named Sidecat as it moved through the successful application process for $37 million in state tax incentives.“It continues to show not just the Silicon Valley, but job creators all over the country, that, hey, you know what, something must be happening in Ohio,” the Republican congressman said, noting the hope that a synergy is beginning to build.
