Microsoft has committed to invest $1 billion in a four data center campus in Catawba County, North Carolina. This move comes during a time when data center site selection can hinge on whether a local government will extend tax incentives. In Microsoft's case, Catawba County extended a series of grants to woo the hyperscaler to its part of North Carolina. In exchange for at least 50 new jobs and $1 billion of development across three of its cities, Catawba County approved grants of property to Microsoft over the next 10 years.
