Google's Atlanta Data Center


Anyone know where this is exactly? Is it in Atlanta or is it on the outskirts like Marietta.

Thanks

I cannot imagine them telling anyone where it is.

If I knew, I would not tell anyone that I did not know well.

Reason is obvious, I hope....

For some reason, I imagine a multi-colored campus, surrounded by hundreds of acres of green land. Wonder, if you knew the address, could you Google Maps it?

Well I was hoping someone might drive by it on the way to work and knew that it was the Google facility. Yeah it is obvious, but I have an interview Wednesday and I was just trying to see what options are available for apartments and how far away they are. I don't want to get all excited if all my options suck or I can't find a place that is large dog friendly and still close.

Have you tried Googling for it?

Yeah I didn't find a definitive answer. Everything just says Atlanta, but a few have mentioned other cities surrounding the heart of Atlanta. I could have missed something, but so far no definite answer.

Wouldn't it be interesting if figuring out where they are was actually one of the interview tests? Like if you didn't manage to arrive for your appointment, so they disqualify you because they figure you're not resourceful enough to find out where to go?

I found it, it is outside Atlanta I just needed to do a few tweaks to my Google queries. It looks like they were trying to keep it a secret at one time, but it leaked out. It isn't near the first location someone said it was going to be.
