US search engine giant Google Wednesday opened its first data centres in Asia to cater for soaring demand, and said it would double its planned investment in the Taiwan facility to $600 million.
Google inaugurated one of the new centres at an industrial park at Changhua in central Taiwan, and said a similar facility in Singapore was also up and running as of Wednesday.
The company last year announced plans to set up three data centres in Asia -- in Taiwan, Hong Kong and Singapore.
But it later scrapped its plan for Hong Kong, citing land acquisition problems.
