Yahoo has revealed plans to invest US$500 million in expanding its data centre infrastructure. Yahoo says it plans to build in 2012 and beyond. The planned expansion includes existing data centres in Buffalo, Omaha and Washington state and new facilities in Singapore and Switzerland.
“We are in essence rewiring the entire infrastructure of Yahoo,” Scott Noteboom, the head of data centre operations at Yahoo said. “We’ve gained approval to invest half a billion dollars to build new data centres. We’ll be migrating the entire footprint of Yahoo to these more efficient facilities.”
