Amazon has revealed its intention to invest $7.8 billion in data centres in Ohio by 2030. These facilities will house servers, data storage, and networking equipment for cloud computing purposes.
Various locations in the central part of the state are being considered as potential sites for the data centres. Currently, Amazon Web Services (AWS) has operational campuses in Franklin and Licking counties.
Over the past six years, AWS has already invested $6.3 billion in the region, creating 3,500 full-time jobs.
Jon Husted, the Lieutenant Governor of Ohio, expressed his enthusiasm for the development, stating that it positions Ohio as a vital hub for the world’s most discussed technology, artificial intelligence.
He added, “This significant capital investment further strengthens Ohio’s position as the technology centre of the Midwest.”
