Oklahoma Department of Commerce - State of Success

Google chose MidAmerica in Prior for its data center.

Why is that?

Information & Financial Services

Plugged in

Natural gas and low energy costs are fueling significant growth and inward investments to Oklahoma from industries that have high-energy needs, particularly data centers. When it comes to financial services, steady housing costs, a highly qualified workforce and relatively low-cost labor force make Oklahoma a great place to do business. Similarly, Oklahoma is the perfect location for back office and administrative occupations.

Companies looking to establish new centers are finding that Oklahoma offers what they need to run a profitable operation; lots of land, low operating and capital costs (i.e.: cheap energy), and ample water.

To date, more than 70 global companies, representing a wide range of industries, have found their way to Oklahoma to establish a data center that services their IT storage needs.
