Google builds 2 new data centers in Ohio

On Wednesday, May 3, 2023, Google announced its plan to scale its footprint in Central Ohio by building two additional datacenters in Columbus and Lancaster to power its Artificial Intelligence Technology and user tools like Google search, Google Maps, and Gmail. With one datacenter already up and running in New Albany (roughly 31 kilometers northeast of Columbus), the two new data centers will bring Google's total investment in Ohio to more than $2 billion.

The Columbus data center will sit on the Far South Side at the former site of Hartman Farm, located at 5076 S., whereas the Lancaster data center will also sit on former farmland along Whiley Road and just off of U.S. Route 33.

As a tech company based in Ohio, Data Pluzz Services is excited about the news of Google's expansion in the state. This expansion will not only create job opportunities for local residents but also draw investors and tech firms from around the world. In the near future, Datapluzz Services will collaborate with some of these multinational companies to support Ohio's tech growth and continue to provide top-notch data solutions to businesses in Ohio and beyond.

Construction has already commenced at the two new locations, according to Google. These infrastructures, when completed, will bring jobs and economic growth to the state of Ohio, as well as much-needed computing power for Google's expanding operations.
