Google ready to make 'biggest investment in Luxembourg's history'
The Luxembourg government has now proposed a 25-hectare site to Google in Bissen to construct its future data centre. The offer now needs to be discussed by the US bosses, according to a report on Saturday.
Google’s plans are to set up a large data centre in the Grand Duchy to assert its position in a highly competitive market. Such investment in Luxembourg is unprecedented and would create several hundred jobs.
The plot of land, right in the centre of the country, would be an ideal location for Google.
"This would be the biggest investment in Luxembourg's history," said Economy Minister Etienne Schneider when contacted by Luxemburger Wort.
The internet giant has been losing ground where data storage is concerned, or cloud computing as it is commonly known, especially to the likes of Amazon Web Services.
