Google Plans to Open 2nd Data Center in North Texas

Google has announced it has plans underway to open a second data center in the North Texas area. 

The first data center is currently underway in Midlothian, just south of Dallas. Google has not specified where exactly the second location will be, but it is not unlikely that it would be in the Collin or Denton county areas. 

“This growth will allow us to invest in the communities where we operate, while we improve the products and services that help billions of people and businesses globally,” said Google CEO Sundar Pichai in a blog post. “Our new data center investments, in particular, will enhance our ability to provide the fastest and most reliable services for all our users and customers.”

The Google data centers house powerful equipment to handle internet traffic. Last year, Google spent $9 billion on expansions across the United States. This year, Google plans to invest over $13 billion in technology upgrades, and bring offices and data centers to other states, including Nebraska, Nevada, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina and Virginia.

As of now, there is no expected completion date for either the Midlothian data center or the other North Texas data center.
