The Oregonian reported Wednesday that Atlanta-based T5 Data Centers has announced plans to build a 200,000-square foot server farm in Hillsboro.
The state already has six data centers of that size or larger. Most have opened within the past two years.
Relatively cheap power rates make the Pacific Northwest attractive to data center companies.
T5 President Pete Marin said in a statement that Hillsboro offers the best combination of low taxes, low power costs, a reliable infrastructure and easy access for out-of-region companies.
