Evidence is mounting that Amazon's second headquarters could end up in an area of Northern Virginia known as Data Center Alley, or, as one author described it, the "bull's-eye of America's internet."
It's estimated that more than 70% of the world's internet traffic flows through Data Center Alley.
Amazon recently put the headquarters of its cloud business just 3 miles from the proposed HQ2 site.
Amazon is also planning to build a 44-acre data-center campus nearby.


Evidence is mounting that Amazon could select Northern Virginia - and specifically a site near Dulles International Airport - as the location of its next headquarters, dubbed HQ2.
