April 4, 2012 1 Comment »

Google Inc. is constructing its third Asian data center in Taiwan. Its two facilities exist in Hong Kong and Singapore and the Taiwan data center comes in the face of increasing customer demand for its services. With these three data centers, Google will be able to deliver reliable and faster access to all its services. Asia is generating immense amount of demand for internet services. Globally speaking, Asia creates more new online users everyday.

The Taiwan data center is coming up in the Changua county and has already seen a ground breaking ceremony. The Taiwan data center is also following the green principles set by the company and uses a mix of free air cooling and thermal energy storage systems to maintain a cool temperature for the facility. The investment amounts to $300 million. Operations should commence by early 2013. With all three data centers up and running by then, Google is following a long term strategy of investing around $700 million in Asia.

Google has three data centers in Asia and 6 across the USA and two more in Europe.
