Google and North Carolina officials have confirmed that the search engine giant will establish a $600-million data centre in the state. 


According to Reuters, upon completion, the server farm will provide 210 jobs in the region which has been hard hit by unemployment in recent years.
North Carolina governor, Mike Easley, told the news agency that Google would provide hundreds of well-paying, knowledge-based  jobs and would help reinvigorate the area.
The state will provide an initial $4.8-million to Google as part of a total incentives package that could stretch to $100-million.
