Microsoft Corp. plans to expand its data center in Mecklenburg County, creating 10 new jobs.

The company’s $499 million investment last year created 50 jobs and represented the largest economic investment in Southern Virginia. The expansion will increase the data center’s cloud infrastructure and services capacities.

Microsoft will spend $150 million to build a new facility at its site.

“Securing this state-of-the-art data center was an important win for the commonwealth, and additional growth will further establish Virginia as an Information Technology leader,” Gov. Bob McDonnell said in a statement.
