Google is proud to call Chile home to one of our data centers.
In September 2012, we announced our plans to build a data center in the municipality of Quilicura, near Santiago, Chile. The data center became fully operational in January 2015, and is one of the most efficient and environmentally friendly data centers in Latin America.
We employ 20 people in a variety of full-time and contractor roles on site, and we work hard to support the communities in which our employees live and work. We estimate our long-term investment in the site will be over $150 million USD.
