The AMD facility will be part of the company's data center consolidation project. AMD spokeswoman Pushpita Prasad told the Atlanta Business Chronicle:
We will be consolidating the capacity from some (of) our smaller data centers in North America into a bigger state-of-the-art facility, which allows us to take advantage of the latest technology and achieve efficiencies of scale.
AMD will invest $25 to $30 million in the initial construction of the data center. The company plans to construct the 153,000-square-foot facility in modules over a 10-year period, DatacenterDynamics reports.
