Gov. Kay Ivey has announced that AUBix LLC plans to open a $120 million data center in Auburn. It’s hoped that it will help communities across Alabama by providing a technological edge to businesses and individuals plus enhanced access to high-speed internet.
Construction has begun on the 40,000-square-foot facility on Samford Avenue, just outside Auburn University’s campus.
AUBix LLC will build and operate the secure, compliant multi-tenant data center. The facility is designed to bring technology parity to underserved communities throughout the state.
“Our goal is to provide customers with secure and compliant infrastructure to host internet applications locally, as well as significantly higher internet speeds and the choice of national/global carriers who compete for their business,” said Andrew Albrecht, co-founder and CEO of AUBix. “In turn, that will attract new businesses to the state, support all levels of academic initiatives and research, and bring value to the communities we serve.”
AUBix is expected to become an economic catalyst for the regions and communities it serves, enabling digital transformation for businesses, supporting academic research and development, and providing access to high-speed internet.
