What: Building North Carolina's Data Center Corridor
North Carolina has seen an explosion of data centers from RTP to Lenoir County. And as companies and consumers rely on the cloud for services and content and more people around the world get Internet access, it will spark a building boom for even more, larger data centers. What will this mean for the state?
On one side, more data centers will require a greater use of resources (energy, land, water, human capital, etc.). And we will rely on tech companies to develop sustainable ways to manage the exploding rates of Internet usage and data consumption. Another expectation is how will the emergence of more data centers impact the employment picture for the Triad, which heavily relied on manufacturing in the past.
