Amazon Web Services (AWS) has revealed plans to invest $10 billion in the construction of two data centre complexes in Mississippi, USA.

The two complexes will be built in two Madison County industrial parks.

The new construction extends Amazon’s presence in the state, where it has already invested $2.3 billion since 2010 in the construction of five fulfilment and sorting centres, four delivery stations, five solar farms, and Mississippi’s first utility-scale wind farm. It has also invested in STEM education programmes in 74 local schools.

Its $10 billion investment in data centres is the single largest capital investment in Mississippi’s history, according to the company. The new data centres are expected to create 1,000 jobs.
