(The Hosting News) – After a little more than two years since its announcement, Google looks like it’s finally almost ready to launch its Taiwan-based data center in Changhua Country.
According to a report from ZDNet’s Eileen Yu on Wednesday, the tech giant has begun recruiting for a number of positions at the facility through LinkedIn.
Such open opportunities posted on the businesses networking website include the following: datacenter facilities engineer, datacenter security specialist and finally, what’s described as a “datacenter environmental and safety technician.”
Over the past couple years, Google has made significant progress by expanding its data center infrastructure. In December of 2012, the company broke ground on its Chile facility and in April, began planning an expansion at its Belgium location.
Google via its official data center website previously noted that it had anticipated carrying out “limited testing” in addition to “bringing the facility online” during the latter part of this year. Meanwhile, the company’s overall investment at the Taiwan site is anticipated to top $300 million.
25 full time staff members are expected to work at the location. Specifics features of the data center include thermal energy storage, nighttime cooling and more.
