Hillsboro, Oregon just became home to yet another high-tech company, with LinkedIn recently opening up its newest data center. LinkedIn believes it to be one of the most advanced data centers in the word, despite its fairly modest presence along Evergreen Parkway.
The buildings that make up the facility, are only two of the three dozen other businesses sitting within an enterprise zone that offers tax breaks for new equipment and buildings. It holds 100k servers with an admirable goal of operating off of 100 percent green energy! According to LinkedIn, “the cool Oregon air” will allow it to save extra energy.
This is LinkedIn’s third database center in the U.S. that will help speed up connections in the West. They plan to hire between three and seven people for the new data center.
