There’s been a rumor circulating the Internet that Google is building a data center in Australia. Although construction crews haven’t been mobilized just yet, there has been a sign that Google hasn’t given up on this idea just yet.
Deepak Ramanathan, thread of Google’s enterprise marketing arm in the Asia-Pacific region, recently spoke at an event in Sydney. Renai LeMay reported that people representing several Australian corporations expressed an interest in Google Apps while there.
According to LeMay, Ramanathan responded by saying that “the search giant was not ruling out an Australian datacenter for services like Gmail, and that discussions were ongoing.”
