Add Russia to the list of locales for future Microsoft datacenters powering the company's growing family of Live services and supporting back-end infrastructure.
Microsoft already announced its datacenter plans for Chicago, Dublin, San Antonio, Santa Clara and Quincy, Wash.
Data Center Knowledge is reporting that Microsoft will be building a new datacenter facility in Irkutsk, one of the largest cities in Siberia, that will be able to hold 10,000 servers. Microsoft's Siberia facility is expected to be smaller than the Chicago or Dublin sites, Data Center Knowledge said.
Microsoft has yet to break ground on the planned Russian facility.
