FOREST CITY, NC (FOX Carolina) -

Facebook's new data center in Forest City is officially open.

The data center opened Thursday and is online and serving live user traffic.

Another building, located on the data center's campus, will open later this year.

The facility uses part of the Open Compute Project launched by Facebook last year to have a greater focus on energy efficiency.
