Texas has secured yet another data centre development this time in Temple where a facility sitting on an 11-acre piece of land is set to generate 56 jobs.
The hub is to be built by Bitmova, LLC, who is to spend $8m in capital investments over the next five years, according to the Temple Economic Development Corporation (Temple EDC),a non-profit organisation that serves as the designated economic development entity for the City of Temple.
The data centre will be located in the Temple Industrial Park and has been given a land grant included in an economic development agreement approved by the Temple EDC board of directors.
Bitmova’s move to deploy IT infrastructure in Temple comes as the company is in need to expand its digital capacity to cope with growing demand for their online services.
The company also plans to dedicate part of the data centre building to research and development work related to Berberry servers and other technologies related to robotics and virtual reality.
According to Temple EDC, in the future, Bitmova plans to also set up an accelerator program on more robotics-related projects.
Behrouz Movahhed Nouri, CEO of Bitmova, LLC, said: “Temple EDC is a great partner, and Temple is a fantastic location.
“Temple Industrial Park offers a unique opportunity to develop a state-of-the-art data centre on a site that has access to low cost, reliable power, infrastructure in place, an excellent network of roads and an available skilled workforce.”
The data centre development is the second investment Temple EDC has closely worked with. The other company was R&L Carriers which is expected to invest $5m and create 30 jobs in Temple.
Temple EDC Vice President Charley Ayres said: “Welcoming Bitmova, LLC to Temple further diversifies our industry base.
“Bitmova will create high wage jobs in a highly technical job, with a significant level of capital investment in our local economy.”
