Google announces $2b for data center, cloud services in Malaysia

Google will invest 9.4 billion ringgit (2 billion U.S. dollars) to establish its first data center and Google Cloud region in Malaysia, the tech company said on Thursday, reported Xinhua.

The data center will power Google's digital services, such as search, maps, and workspace and enable Google to deliver the benefits of artificial intelligence to users and customers across the country, the company said in a statement.

It also said the cloud region will deliver high-performance and low-latency services to large enterprises, startups, and public sector organizations, allowing customers to benefit from key controls and maintain the highest security, data residency, and compliance standards.

Chief Financial Officer of Alphabet and Google Ruth Porat said the investment strengthens its partnership with Malaysia to advance its "Cloud First Policy," including its cybersecurity standards.

Tengku Zafrul Abdul Aziz, minister of investment, trade and industry of Malaysia, said in a separate statement that the partnership and continued investment will accelerate the nation's digital transformation, contributing to the Madani vision towards a more prosperous, technologically advanced Malaysia.
