Google plans Dutch data centre

23 September 2014 |


Google is planning to spend $773 million over the next four years on a data centre in Netherlands to support its European operations.

The facility will be located in the seaport of Eemshaven in the Groningen province, which is said to offer connectivity to the US and the rest of Europe.

According to local reports, the new data centre will host tens of thousands of servers and bring hundreds of new jobs to the province.

Google already has one data centre near Eemshaven as well as facilities in Belgium, Finland and Ireland.
