What are Data Centers? 

Data centers are used to store, process, and share large amounts of data with users. Automated processes enable systems to reach users – you – in order to provide a variety of services and connection flexibility.

After discussions with the nation’s leaders, Google will establish two centers of excellence for artificial intelligence and sustainability. The company invested a respectful sum in new initiatives for the two centers that will be based in Thessaloniki and Patra. This fact will enable the economy to rise rapidly.

Particularly, the Greek real estate industry, is expected to reach a very great degree: According to Greece’s Prime Minister, Kyriakos Mitsotakis, “Google’s intention to spend 2.2 billion euros on its first cloud services in Greece will increase the country’s Gross Domestic Product by 2 billion euros by 2030.”

According to real estate news 2022, this new technology will allow Greek businesses to manage their data effectively and optimize their cyber security.

This is due to businesses, Google, in this case, hires more staff whereas residents make higher salaries.
