eBay Plans Data Center Expansion in Las Vegas

eBay, Inc., the international e-commerce company, plans to expand its data center operations in Las Vegas.

The company plans a capital expansion of $182 million along with several new jobs in the region. The company’s data infrastructure is housed in Switch, a Las Vegas-based leader in co-located data centers.

Other California-based companies like Machine Zone have also located data operations in Nevada thanks to existing industry assets like Switch’s data centers.

The LVGEA assisted both Machine Zone and eBay in accessing state incentive programs.

The LVGEA expects more data centers to be developed in Nevada as a new law establishing data center tax abatements comes into effect January 1, 2016.
