Google planning to build $600m data center in North Carolina

Posted on Monday, January 22 2007 @ 00:10:29 CET by


Google is planning to build a big data center in North Carolina. The server farm will cost $600 million and will employ 210 people:
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.

It's nice for the local economy ofcourse, but I don't think many of the people who were fired from textile/furniture fabs will be IT experts.
