Facebook has turned on its new data center in western North Carolina, the second computing facility the company has designed and built solely for its own use.
In a blog post on Thursday, the social giant announced that the facility — located in Forest City, North Carolina — is online and serving live traffic. This comes 16 months after Facebook first broke ground on the site.
In those 16 months, Facebook says, nearly 2,000 people spent more than 1.2 million hours working on the facility. “It’s no mean feat to bring a service like Facebook to more than 845 million people around the world,” read the blog post from George Henry, the operations manager for the new data center. “And our innovative data centers play a big role in making that possible.”
