About 150 billion dollars or approximately 139 billion euros: that is how much money Amazon would like to allocate over the next fifteen years to build and modernize data centers, Bloomberg reports.

With the expansion, the American cloud player and e-commerce giant wants to respond to the growing demand for – in particular – services related to artificial intelligence. According to Bloomberg, the company wants to invest in data centers worldwide, including new facilities in Texas, Saudi Arabia, Malaysia and Thailand.

Nuclear power plant

Existing AWS data centers, including in the American states of Virginia, Oregon and Mississippi, are eligible for expansion. A few weeks ago, Amazon invested about ten billion dollars in the acquisition of two data centers in the latter state.

In Pennsylvania, Amazon is currently working on a new data center, which is being built in the northeast of the state under the smoke of a nuclear power plant. This plant will supply the data center with energy generated without CO2 emissions, which should help Amazon achieve its environmental goals.
