Google Opens New Data Centre In Dublin

Google is to open its new data centre in Clondalkin, west Dublin today.

It will help run Google's online services, such as Google maps and Gmail.

A year ago Google announced it was to invest €75m (£65m) in a new 11-acre data centre in Dublin.

Google said Ireland's naturally cool climate contributed to its decision.

The centre is to employ up to 30 staff members, and the search giant said its data centres use 50% less energy than typical facilities.
