We’ve heard it on the news, and according to filings with the public regulations commission, Facebook is exploring building a datacenter right here in New Mexico.
New Mexico Living’s resident technology expert Nykia Allen joined in on the discussion.
A datacenter is a facility used to house computer hardware and software storage and systems, backups, data, data-connections, and security. Due to the large digital culture that we live in, IT operations are now so critical to the success of operations that any downtime can mean great loses in revenue.
New Mexico may be under consideration due to a relatively temperate climate, low-costs regionally, and a low-risk for natural disasters.
