“Caldwell County has proven to be an outstanding location for Google’s North Carolina data center. It has the right combination of available resources (power, water, land), a strong business environment, great quality of life, and unique attributes such as the customized job training program available through CCC&TI.”

“Finding an area that had already been chosen by Google as a datacenter location, with a megawatt scale infrastructure, was a win-win combination for us. With the county’s help we renovated an existing facility and had an operational datacenter in six months. Seeing Apple announce its nearby datacenter shortly thereafter reaffirmed our belief that Caldwell County is one of the best locations on the east coast to build and operate a datacenter.”
