A remarkable search engine, Google, has recently planned to spend $200 million to structure new data centers in Asia. This new release has been disclosed after a long period, subsequent to the Google reviews about its data center energy consumption. Google data centers, according to its claims, put up with half of the total industrial energy consumption.
According to Wall Street Journal, Google as a sole owner aims to structure its foremost state of the art data centers in Singapore, Taiwan and Hong Kong. Moreover, Google’s data center portfolio, providing services crossways to US, Belgium and Finland, will be further enhanced due to creation of its new datacenters.
Asia has turned into a renowned region for IT growth and development with enterprises heading towards this region on a fast pace. According to the latest releases by Voxel and SoftLayer, both are inclined towards opening data centers in Singapore.
“Some of the key things we look for in a site include closeness to our users, robust infrastructure, reliable power, availability of skilled workers, reasonable business regulations and cost,” Taj Meadows, Asia policy communications manager at Google, said in a statement.
Following the Google statements, its new data centers will start functioning in the recent coming years; though it previously has great number of employees working in total of 15 preexisting offices all around the Asia Pacific zone.
