Submission + - NSA to build $1.6 billion data center in Utah (

BDPrime writes: "President Barack Obama has authorized Congressional spending of $1.6 billion over the next four years for a massive National Security Agency data center in Utah.

The data center will have 65 megawatts of potential load, enough to power all the homes in Salt Lake City. It will be located at Camp Williams, a military base just south of Salt Lake City. Initial spending for the facility, to be located on a 200-acre site, is $169.5 million. Officials hope to begin construction in September and finish next May."
