Google Adds to Cloud Coverage in Asia

Google is building out its Internet infrastructure in Asia, amid growing demand for cloud-based services there. The company said today it will spend some $200 million to construct three data centers in the region, one each in Singapore, Hong Kong and Taiwan.

Built from the ground up by Google, these three facilities will be the first in the Asia-Pacific region to be fully owned by the company. Google expects them to be operational in one to two years, barring any major hiccups.

The investment comes as demand for Internet services in the region soars and competition between local players heats up.

“More people are coming online every day in Asia than in any other part of the world, so locating data centers here is an important next stage of Google’s investment in the region,” Google said in a statement.

Just as the atom bomb was the weapon that was supposed to render war obsolete, the Internet seems like capitalism’s ultimate feat of self-destructive genius, an economic doomsday device rendering it impossible for anyone to ever make a profit off anything again. It’s especially hopeless for those whose work is easily digitized and accessed free of charge.
