The announcement for this was made back in June and all proposals were due on July 28. Has anyone heard any updates? could this have anything to do with maybe Amazon (wishful thinking)?

It's said that this could be among the world's largest data centers.

It will be coming along right after the huge bio-corridor.

Says who? I seriously doubt anything close to that for many reasons. Last I read, it was looking for a public-private partnership to build a new datacenter to house university services as well as cloud and colocation services for business working on joint projects with TAMU. They currently have a similar concept with their shared space at Fibertown in Bryan.

I'm also skeptical it would be among the world's largest, because there are some awfully big data centers in the world.

Might be the largest in a niche, like maybe largest data center dedicated to a university or on a college campus, but won't be the largest of all.

As long as it's bigger than anything t.u. has, we're good.

"could be among" is a pretty vague statement that can be applied to just about anything. I could be among the hottest guys in the world. I'm probably not, but I could be!
