Google paid $29M for 1200 acres at a private industrial park east of Reno, a few miles to the south of Tesla's Giga Factory for batteries. Google needs a data center somewhat comparable to the size of an NSA data center, given that Google is keeping track of everything done with its search engines and advertizing connections throughout the internet.
It’s a massive and growing database that tracks everyone by name, computer history, and preferences. While many in Utah were upset that their state ended up houseing one of the largest NSA Data Centers, Google is now looked upon by many Americans as a private extension of the NSA and government spying.
