At this point there are only speculations of what Google’s plans in the future are. Below is one theory-
“Google is aggressively expanding its network of computers—likely already the biggest in the world—to support its core internet business and its push into selling computing power over the internet, known as cloud computing.
The company believes its cloud business could one day eclipse the advertising business that accounted for 88% of Alphabet’s $90 billion in sales last year. Google and cloud rivals Amazon.com Inc. and Microsoft Corp. are collectively spending billions of dollars each year on data centers, vast warehouses of computer servers.
A Google data center near Reno would likely leverage new fiber-optic connections at the industrial park. Internet-infrastructure company Switch LPD recently connected Silicon Valley, Los Angeles, Las Vegas and the Tahoe Reno Industrial Center with high-speed cable that can deliver data around the loop in less than 14 milliseconds, or thousandths of a second.” The Wall Street Journal- By Jack Nicas in San Francisco and Jim Carlton in Reno, Nev.
