"Our investment is beyond just building data centers, it’s a testament to our 37-year commitment to Spain, its security, and development and digital transformation of its government, businesses, and people," Smith writes. Details of the Spanish investment have not yet been disclosed. The investment in Spain follows the announcement of an AI-focused investment of 3.2 billion euros in Germany.
