PRYOR, Okla. - Google announced a $13 billion investment Wednesday in facilities across the country, including its data center in Pryor, Oklahoma.
Officials said the expansion will create “more than 10,000 new construction jobs in Nebraska, Nevada, Ohio, Texas, Oklahoma, South Carolina and Virginia.”
Pryor houses one of just 13 data centers owned by Google in the United States. It will be expanded in 2019 as part of the company’s $13 billion investment plan.
“2019 marks the second year in a row we’ll be growing faster outside of the Bay Area than in it,” Google CEO Sundat Pichai wrote in a company blog post.
