Google is proud to call Singapore home to one of our data centers.
In September 2011, we announced that we had acquired 2.45 hectares of land in Jurong West, with plans to build a data center. The facility, which came online in December 2013, was our first data center in Southeast Asia and serves users across the region.
More new internet users come online every day in Asia than anywhere else in the world. This data center allows us to make sure that our users here have the fastest and most reliable access possible to all of Google’s services, and then some. This facility is also one of the most efficient and environmentally friendly in Asia – its cooling system relies on recycled water and was built to the same high standard we use around the world, with each element custom-designed to operate at optimal efficiency.
