Google is planning to invest more than $ 13 billion this year on new and expanded data centers and offices across the United States  CEO Sundar Pichai announced the news in a blog posts Wednesday, emphasizes the company's growth outside of Mountain View, California, USA and the Midwest and South.
"2019 marks the second year in a row, we will grow faster outside (San Francisco) Bay Area than in it," he wrote.
Google will build new data centers in Nevada, Texas, Oklahoma, Nebraska, Ohio, South Carolina, and Virginia. Pichai estimated that the construction of the new centers will use 10,000 workers.
It gives a good political sense that Google should mark its extensions outside the coastal cities, said researcher Scott Kessler, CFRA. US lawmakers have been paying increasing attention to Google and other major tech companies over the past year, and are considering taking over privacy laws to regulate the company's reach. Investing more across the US can help career favor with federal politicians and officials, he said.
Google focuses on expanding its cloud computing business, a market where it faces stiff competition from major rivals Amazon and Microsoft.  The company will have a physical presence in 24 states by the end of the year. It currently has placements in 21 states and expands to Nevada, Ohio and Nebraska.
The extension is probably also a way of attracting new employees, says Kessler. Google will add an office in Georgia and expand offices in multiple cities, including Seattle and Chicago.
Google said it spent more than $ 9 billion on similar extensions across the country last year.
Google did not give the exact number of employees it expects to employ as a result of the expansion in 2019, but said it would be "tens of thousands" of full-time employees.
