The trio of new data centers in the Asia-pacific region will represent Google’s first fully-owned facilities in the Asia-pacific region. Google already owns and operates six data centers in the United States, one in Finland, and one in Belgium, according to the Dow Jones Newswires article. Once construction begins, Google expects the data centers to be operational within one to two years, the article reports. In Singapore, Google has obtained 2.45 hectares of land in Jurong West, while in Taiwan it acquired 15 hectares of land in Changhua county. In Taiwan, the company expects the facility to add five to 20 full-time staff. In Hong Kong, the U.S. firm has acquired 2.7 hectares of land in Kowloon.
