TAIPEI, Taiwan — Google Inc. is building a data center in Taiwan – its third in Asia after Hong Kong and Singapore – to meet the rapidly growing online demand across the region, the company said Tuesday.
The three data centers – with investment totaling $700 million – will provide users with faster, more reliable access to various Google products, the Internet search giant said as its Taiwan facility broke ground in the western county of Changhua.
“More new Internet users are coming online everyday here in Asia than anywhere else in the world,” he said. “They are looking for information and entertainment, new business opportunities and better ways to connect with friends and family.”
“During the day, when Taiwan heats up – especially in the summers – and power is more expensive to produce, we’ll circulate that cold water throughout the facility to keep it cool,” it said in a statement.
