Microsoft Deems Korea Data Center

The Korean Herald reported earlier today that Microsoft is deeming the possibility of data center in South Korea. The reports surfaced after a senior company executive met with the Korean authorities.

The President of Microsoft’s International Business Jean Philippe Courtois met with the Chairman of the Korea Communications Commission (KCC) and discussed the possibilities of investment and collaboration in the country. Both the senior executives talked about the different technology aspects in the meeting.

Microsoft released a statement saying that it is ‘reviewing several options’ to invest in Korea. Some local reports also suggest that the company is also considering the available options to build a data center in the region.

Microsoft’s Courtois is second major figure from international tech community who visited KCC. Previously, Google Chairman Eric Schmidt visited the country and met with senior regulator execs as well as with Korean handset manufacturers to promote its Android platform and investment in the region.

Like Google, which has plans to prop up local web talent, the Korean government hopes that Microsoft will also come up with positive initiatives to encourage investment and its presence in the region and play its role to boost the Korean tech market.
