Microsoft has been given the go-ahead for a massive €380m data centre in Dublin that will employ up to 450 construction workers and result in 150 full-time jobs. South Dublin County Council has just given the all-clear for the project, which will be Microsoft’s fourth data centre in the Clondalkin area of Dublin. Construction works have been slated to begin next month.
It will bring to roughly €900m the amount of money Microsoft has spent on building data centres in Ireland.
It also further cements Ireland’s credentials as a leading international location for data centres. A number of major global online giants, including Google and Amazon, have also based large data centres in Ireland that they use to deal with the growing demands of internet usage.
