Building this data center in Chile is an exciting step for us. As Internet usage in Latin America grows, people are looking for information and entertainment, new business opportunities and better ways to connect with friends and family near and far. We’re building this data center to make sure that our users across Latin America and the world have the fastest and most reliable access possible to all of Google’s services.
We are also really excited about the facility itself. We estimate that our long-term investment in this data center will reach $150 million USD and will be one of the most efficient and environmentally friendly in Latin America, built to the same high standards we use around the world.
