Google Eyes A Data Center In India

GOOGLE is interested in opening a Data Center in Asia and has shortlisted a few countries. India is one of the them but others like Malaysia, Taiwan, South Korea and Vietnam are also strong contenders. Google has not yet decided which country is it going to be but it has made all the right sounds about which all countries it could be in the hope of getting the best bang for its investment in the form of tax holidays, sops etc from the host government.

So what exactly is a Data center and why are the various government competing against each other to bite the bullet.

A Google Data Center is the place where the cached version of the copy is saved. So when you search for a term on Google, the information is retrieved from these Data Centers.

According to an interview on CBS’s 60 Minutes, Google reported (2005) that it currently had over 100,000 servers in which it used to store data on. Google stores a cached version (copy) of every page it finds on the internet!

According to Google, it is evaluation of these cached pages that determines what pages will be returned in the Google search results for any keyword or phrase searched for. “The cached content is the content Google uses to judge whether this page is a relevant match for your query.” – It may be helpful to think of these cached pages as “books” in a Library.

It may be helpful to think of Datacenters as Libraries (a place you would go to look for information of interest).

Typically, Google invests $600 million in each of its Data Center.

Companies often begin with a multi site search in order to coax out incentives from local government, which sweeten their offers to outbid rivals from other regions.

You can read more about it from here.

Note – I am providing old data about Google Data Centers because everything about them is a closely guarded information and any snippet is hard to come by.

    3. If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

    4. Nice blog mate, hope you’re getting ready for the coming crash! The hammer is going to drop soon. The economy is going to sink before August 2013 (this is when the Federal Reserve’s 100 Year Charter expires). Spread the word and stay safe. Peace.

      Nice Work , i will add yr blog in my fav …:) Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

    39. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.
