Google, an underdog in Asia, lays plans for Taiwan data center [csmonitor.com]

So this week, the 14-year-old Google announced that by the end of next year, it would open a data center in Taiwan to improve search speeds and reliability around the region.

Google has already started building data centers in Hong Kong and Singapore. But the larger one in Taiwan comes with government incentives and will boast a specific geographic advantage. That is, Taiwan gets Net traffic easily from the United States, home to Google and the source of numerous Internet search results, as it sits at the ends of undersea cables that extend directly here from North America before branching off to other parts of Asia.

Google will spend a combined $700 million on the three centers, which generally house computers and storage systems that help speed connections and keep them secure.

Good. At times, Google is incredibly slow here, especially with https.

They're pretty fast in Japan...faster than Yahoo.com, but not as quick as Yahoo Japan and Bing.
