Ask.com Chooses Central Washington For New Data Center

Ask.com, Intuit bringing new data centers to state reports that Ask.com has selected Washington State for the location of a new data center, designed to help save Ask.com money on power. Although Ask.com did not mention which building they have selected, we know they “signed a lease in an existing building in Moses Lake.” Rumors are that they have picked the Titan building, which is in a “former NORAD Missile Control Center.”

In related news, Google’s North Carolina deal may get reviewed by the Senate Finance Committee, according to this AP story. Senate leader Marc Basnight “said he will ask the Senate Finance Committee next week to examine successes and failures in the state’s economic recruiting, the kinds of incentives offered and whether changes should be made.”

Meanwhile, the Livingston Daily reports Grady Burnett, head of online sales and operations for Google’s Ann Arbor branch, is to speak Tuesday morning at a “popular breakfast event” to benefit the Howell Area Chamber of Commerce.

    The Titan One project in Moses Lake has been around for a few years, but Ask.com would be its most prominent lease. The facility can accommodate about 100,000 square feet of raised-floor technical space. It’s above ground, but has a lot of bunker-style infrastructure:
