Google is expanding the global infrastructure as the part of the private trans-Atlantic fiber cable which they have announced earlier month. To fulfill this initiative, they have announced a new data center in Singapore to serve the people of Southeast Asia region.
This center will be the third in line in Singapore to celebrate the milestone as 70 million people have come online since from 2015. Google noticed that the total number of users i.e 330 million is more than the US population.
The first center of Google was opened in 2011 and the second one came in 2015. Last year, the search engine giant started a Google Cloud Platform region especially for the enterprise customers along with the clients.
“More businesses are getting online too, so demand for our expanding Google Cloud Platform (GCP) offerings has grown quickly. Since first opening our GCP region in Singapore last year, companies like Singapore Airlines, Ninjavan and Wego have joined the likes of GO-JEK and Carousell, using GCP to serve their customers globally.”
The new center will be located in Jurong West which is ‘just down the road’ from the previous buildings. With this new venture, the total investment of Google in Singapore data center will be $850 million.
Google has already published a rendered 3D model of the building which will be ‘one of the most efficient and environmentally friendly sites in Asia’.
