This is the official page for Facebook's data center in Altoona, Iowa.
We are excited to be a part of the growth of the City of Altoona and the surrounding area. In the summer of 2013 we broke ground on the facility and we started serving user traffic from building one in November 2014. Building two is completed and building three plus its cold storage expansion are almost complete. We announced in May 2016 that we are expanding to add a fourth building.
