Google to set up 3 data centres in Asia

HONG KONG: Google Inc plans to invest at least US$200 million (RM636 million) to build its first three data centre s in Asia as it expands its infrastructure to keep pace with the region’s burgeoning Internet use.

The Internet search giant has bought land in Hong Kong, Taiwan and Singapore for the data centres, which typically are secure facilities packed with thousands of computers that store and serve vast amounts of data.

It aims to finish construction in one to two years, but didn’t give specific start dates. — AP
