Online retailer and provider of public-cloud servicesAmazon bought a large property in Dublin, Ireland, with plans to turn it into a data center, Independent.ie reported.
The 240,000-sq-ft building is a former storage facility of the supermarket chain Tesco, which moved out more than two years ago. The property, sitting on a 13-acre site had been on the market ever since its last occupant left.
