Yahoo cutting the ribbon in Quincy

Can you buy tire chains in Sunnyvale?

Yahoo executives may need them next week, when they’re trekking to Quincy for the grand opening of the company’s new datacenter.

It’s the first one Yahoo has built from the ground up and one of several taking advantage of the area’s cheap hydropower and fast Internet connections.

Co-founder David Filo and operations VP Kevin Timmons will cut the ribbon Dec. 3 at a ceremony with local officials.

I wonder if they’ll use the facility to power a data storage service, a mandatory part of every Internet giant’s online suite nowadays.

Some may see that as playing catch-up to Microsoft, AOL and nearly 100 startups, but others might see it as a brilliant move to “accelerate a shift to Web-based computing and intensify the Internet company’s competition with Microsoft Corp.”
