Google Data Center Set for Dublin

(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – Earlier this week, various media reports indicated that tech giant Google was planning three data center facilities in Asia. Now it appears that there’s another one to add onto that.

According to a press release by IDA Ireland, Google will construct a facility in Dublin to host Google services related to Google Maps, Gmail, and of course, Google’s general search engine.

For €75 million, the data center will make use of energy-efficient technology.

“The new data centre will be one of the most energy-efficient in Google’s global fleet,” stated Google Ireland Head John Herlihy. “This investment further strengthens our presence here, and I’d like to thank IDA Ireland for the assistance they gave us in selecting this site,” he continued.

Google has an already established presence in the Irish Capital. Besides construction jobs, thirty data center jobs are expected. For more information on the matter, visit:
