  • Welcome

    Google is proud to call Georgia home to one of our data centers.

    Google has had a data center presence in the Atlanta region since 2003. Over the years, we've invested over $1.2 billion in Douglas County and created over 350 jobs in Georgia, working hard to support the communities in which our employees live and work.

    Since 2011, we've awarded more than $7.5 million to Georgia nonprofits and schools. Our employees are active volunteers in the community. Additionally, we've designed an innovative reuse water system to use recycled water for 100% of our cooling needs.
