The internet search giant is entering the final stages of development in building its new data centre in Taiwan. The new centre will be the third one built in Asia by Google after Singapore and Hong Kong.
Google said the new data centre is being built to meet the quickly growing online demand across Asia, according to Associated Press.
The Taiwan site is estimated to be $300m bringing the total of building the three sites in Asia to $700m.
It will have a full time staff of 25 employees with part time and contracting positions likely to be made as well, the company said.

Google Inc is one of the only International online search companies to develop data centres in Asia. At the ground breaking ceremony in Changhua, Daniel Alegre, Google’s Asia Pacific President, said that the move was made so Google can enhance the growing internet potential in the region.
"More new Internet users are coming online everyday here in Asia than anywhere else in the world. That is why we are building data centres in Asia – to ensure that our users here have the fastest, most reliable access possible to all of our services, so they can continue putting them to work."
Google is planning to have the data centre up and running for testing by 2013.
