US technology company Google plans to invest up to two billion USD (47 billion CZK) in a data center in Poland. The investment is part of a plan to expand cloud services, the Polish newspaper Puls Biznesu reported.
The news comes after the US announcement of Microsoft in May that it is investing one billion dollars in Poland’s data center.
Poland is the largest economy in the eastern part of the European Union and is trying to gain a regional technology center, Reuters reported.
Google’s planned investment in Warsaw is expected to be the most significant infrastructure investment of its kind in the country. The center should be operational beginning next year.
Polish Deputy Prime Minister Jadwiga Emilewicz told the paper that Google estimated it could invest 1.5 billion to two billion dollars in the project.
