OK, not really. But according to this report from Data Center Knowledge, Microsoft is planning to build a very large data center in the Siberian city of Irkutsk. Reports suggest that at 10,000 servers, it will not be as big as some other projects the company has under way in Chicago, Ireland, San Antonio and, of course, Quincy.
These massive investments run the company's growing array of Internet services, such as the recently launched Windows Live Suite. Check out this story for details on Microsoft's services infrastructure strategy.
We saw the Siberia news first on Mary Jo Foley's blog.
Our intrepid Deputy Business Editor Rami Grunbaum recently visited Irkutsk and captured this image. He was told that's the opera house in the background. Maybe the data center is just around the corner.
