Google has opened its first data centers in Asia to cater for soaring demand.

Google inaugurated one of the new centers at an industrial park at Changhua in central Taiwan, and said a similar facility in Singapore was also up and running.

The company last year announced plans to set up three data centers in Asia—in Taiwan, Hong Kong and Singapore.

Google has decided to commit more resources to Asia where the number of Internet users—mainly using smartphones and tablet computers—has surged much faster than in other continents, said AP.
