With rapidly evolving technology and the resulting creation of volumes of data, storage needs are massive. Arkansas has a significant and growing data center sector, including the headquarters of Acxiom Corporation, a leading provider of data used for customer relationship management. Its main data center, located in Conway, can store up to 2,000 terabytes of information.
With some of the lowest utility costs in the nation, electric rates in Arkansas contribute to the overall affordability as a location for data centers. Arkansas's water resources are also sufficient to support this industry.
