Google Establishes Mesa, Arizona, Data Center

Google will establish data center operations in Mesa, Arizona. The company plans to invest $600 million.

The new facility, the company’s first physical presence in the state, will help power popular digital services, like Google Search, Gmail, Maps, Google Cloud, and others. Google also announced that a new Cloud region is coming to Phoenix to complement its existing network of regions around the world.

“We are proud to put down roots in Arizona with both the data center in Mesa and the Phoenix cloud region,” said Joe Kava, Vice President, Data Centers, Google. “Not only do data centers help keep digital services up and running for people and businesses, they are economic anchors in the communities where we operate. We are appreciative of the continued partnership with the local leadership across the state.”

Beyond its operations, state officials said Google is committed to improving local watershed health where its office campuses and data centers are located and replenish 120% of the water it consumes, on average. As part of its commitment in Arizona, the company is announcing a $150,000 donation to help fund Salt River Project’s (SRP) effort focused on watershed restoration and wildfire risk reduction for surrounding rural communities.

"Google's investment in Arizona will be critical for the Mesa community and our state's economy,” noted Governor Katie Hobbs. “Arizona continues to attract global technology leaders due to our skilled workforce, dynamic economy and focus on innovation. We are proud to welcome Google to Arizona and look forward to the many opportunities this partnership will bring.”
