Google to Build New Data Centers Around the World

Google to Build New Data Centers Around the World”

Google (GOOGL) said Tuesday it plans to add three new undersea cables next year as part of a broader effort to improve and expand its cloud computing services.

The new cables include Curie, which will link Chile to Los Angeles; Havfrue, connecting the USA to Denmark and Ireland; and the Hong-Kong-Guam (HK-G) cable system, linking up "major subsea communication hubs in Asia", Google's Vice President for 24/7 Operations Ben Treynor Sloss wrote in a blog post.

Google will commission three new undersea cables in 2019 in a substantial expansion of its global infrastructure.

Google said in 2019 it will be involved with the commissioning of three sub-sea cables: Curie, a private cable connecting Chile to Los Angeles; Havfrue, a consortium cable connecting the USA to Denmark and Ireland; and the Hong Kong-Guam Cable, connecting major subsea communication hubs in Asia.

Google now has a direct investment in 11 under-sea cables and it leases capacity on several others.

Federal judge temporarily blocks Trump administration's plan to end DACA
DACA has allowed them to receive a renewable two-year period of deferred action from deportation and get a work permit. Citizenship and Immigration Services stopped taking renewal applications in early October.

The Hong Kong-Guam cable system will help Google reach customers in Australia and the Pacific region. The Curie cable, named after Nobel prize-winning scientist Marie Curie, is the first intercontinental cable built by a company that's not in telecommunications. Google promises they are not done yet and there will be additional announcements of other regions. The five new regions include the Netherlands and Montreal which will both open in the first quarter of 2018. The third will connect Hong Kong to Guam.

Over the past three years alone, Google has spent an impressive $30 billion building out and expanding its infrastructure in a bid to outpace rivals like Microsoft and Amazon in the cloud services business.

The Curie cable will be privately owned by Google and will connect Chile to Los Angeles. "Also, once the cable is deployed, we can make routing decisions that optimize for latency and availability", he added. Once deployed, Curie will be Chile's largest single data pipe.

The conglomerate has tapped undersea communications system supplier TE Connectivity to construct the cable. We don't know when exactly Google plans to launch in those last three regions, but it says that it'll have more on tap once the roll out to all five is complete.

The $300 million "Faster" cable system is backed by six companies, including Google, and runs through the Pacific Ocean from OR to Chiba and Mie.
