Microsoft Says Investing $130 Million to Expand Dublin Centre

Feb. 23 (Bloomberg) -- Microsoft Corp. will invest an extra $130 million to expand its data centre in Dublin as demand increases for its “cloud” services such as Office 365, Windows Live and Xbox Live.

“We are continuing to build new infrastructure and services in order to meet current and future demands,” Stephen McGibbon, chief technology officer, Microsoft EMEA, said in the statement.

Microsoft made an initial investment of $500 million in the Dublin data centre, which has been operational since 2009, and the expansion will add a 112,000 square feet (10,405 square meters) facility to the centre, the company said.
