Amazon to build another data centre in Tallaght

By Rachel Maloney

It is reported that Amazon has already started the planning process for their additional data centre here in Tallaght. The huge tech firm have asked South Dublin County Council for their permission to demolish the current buildings.

The company bought Jacob’s factory in Tallaght in July 2015 and are now developing it into a data centre. Jacob’s Factory was closed down and was unused for eight years.

Amazon also has seven data centres in Ireland but feel this development will bring more attention to their presence in Dublin.
