Every little helps

Providing a secure and efficient Helpdesk

Amazon has bought a 240,000 sq ft warehouse in Dublin and will build a data centre there.

According to trade reports, Amazon will use the site to house the European leg of its EC2 cloud computing services.

Amazon likes Ireland and Ireland must love Amazon: the company's cloud hosting business now accounts for more than a third of all internet-facing web servers in the country, according to the Netcraft monitoring service.

Amazon's new Dublin building sits on 13 acres and used to belong to Tesco. The transaction is said to be biggest shed sale in Ireland in the last 12 months.

Data Center Knowledge has a picture of the inside of the building. And yes, it is a bloody big shed. ®
