(The Hosting News) – Tech giant Google is at it again, most recently revealing that it had started construction on a new data center located in South America. Not far outside Santiago, Chile, the new facility will hold an eventual $150 million dollar investment from the top online search giant.
Discussing the matter via its data center website, Google referred to the move as “an exciting step.”
“As Internet usage in Latin America grows, people are looking for information and entertainment, new business opportunities and better ways to connect with friends and family near and far. We’re building this data center to make sure that our users across Latin America and the world have the fastest and most reliable access possible to all of Google’s services,” commented the company.
High-end jobs will be provided when the Quilicura data center is eventually brought online after its completion, set for the end of next year.
Google currently maintains a variety of data centers providing for the company’s popular online services. Other locations include U.S. states such as Georgia, South Carolina and Iowa along with European locations including Finland and Belgium.
Late last year in December, the company detailed plans to build a $300 million dollar data center in Hong Kong, China as part of an operation that would see three new facilities located in the Asia-Pacific region.
