Report: Microsoft Mulling Texas Data Center Build

San Antonio site competing with another location outside of Texas

Microsoft is considering a big land purchase in San Antonio, Texas, for a data center construction project, Puget Sound Business Journal reported citing multiple anonymous sources. The company is also weighing one other potential new data center location outside of Texas.

The 75-100-acre property in San Antonio is located at the Texas Research Park. If the company decides to go with San Antonio, it will bring a third Microsoft data center to the city. It has a 470,000-square-foot data center in Westover Hills and currently building a 256,000-square-foot one next to it.
