Google To Spend $184 Million Expanding Data Center In Finland [bloomberg.com]
Google plans to spend 150 million euros ($184 million) to expand its data center in Finland as demand rises for online access to video and data.

The construction work to expand the facility in Hamina, about 150 kilometers (93 miles) east of Helsinki, will last about 18 months, Google said today in a statement distributed at a media event at the site.

Google, based in Mountain View, California, needs more capacity as demand increases for data-intensive services such as its YouTube video website and Gmail. In April, the company said it will spend more than $300 million building its largest Asian data center in Taiwan, after announcing smaller centers in Hong Kong and Singapore in September.
