The so-called "server farm" will eventually employ 210 people in a region hit hard in recent years by layoffs in the furniture and textile industries.
"This company will provide hundreds of good-paying, knowledge-based jobs that North Carolinas citizens want," Gov. Mike Easley said in a statement. "It will help reinvigorate an area hard hit by the loss of furniture and textile jobs with 21st century opportunities."
The state will give the company $4.8 million as part of a total incentives package that could reach more than $100 million.
