U.S. server provider opens hub in Taiwan

Taipei, Jan. 6 (CNA) American-based server provider Super Micro Computer, Inc. (SMCI) opened a science and technology park in Taoyuan County, northern Taiwan Friday, a complex expected to create 3,000 job opportunities, according to the InvesTaiwan Service Center (ITSC). The company has invested NT$3 billion (US$100 million) in the technology park, and hopes to position it as Super Micro's systems integration and operations center in Asia, said ITSC, a government organization offering businesses assistance in investing in Taiwan. The American-based company sees Taiwan as a strong economic hub in the Asia-Pacific region. "The opening of our state-of-the-art science and technology park in Taiwan is a major milestone for Super Micro and establishes us as a top tier player in the enterprise server, storage and supercomputing business," Super Micro President and CEO Charles Liang said in a statement. A Ministry of Economic Affairs official told CNA that cloud computing technology is a key focus of Taiwan's efforts to solicit investment, and the technology park is a step in that direction. Super Micro's science park, he said, is expected to bring together more companies from related sectors and form a complete supply chain, which will spur the growth of Taiwan's cloud computing technology. The official said that even though the economic outlook for this year remains unclear, several companies are still expected to make major investments in Taiwan totaling NT$1.1 trillion.
