Throughout the past month or so, Google’s stock has taken a well-documented beating.  The company remains massive, though (with a market cap of $177 billion), and new reports indicate that Google may build the world’s largest server farm in Malaysia.

Vietnam and India are also possibilities, according to Isabelle Duerme, but the odds appear to favor that first country.  Malaysia’s prime minister, Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, even stated, "They want to make their presence felt in Malaysia."Google May Construct Server Farm In Malaysia

As for the server farm itself, numbers remain completely absent from the conversation – nothing related to time, prices, or square footage seems to have been publicly mentioned.  Still, judging from the size of other server farms, it’s safe to bet that over $1 billion will go into the project, and at least 250 acres should become involved.

All that’s left, then, is to sit and wait for Google to move forward.  It’s possible that current economic conditions will slow down any progress, yet at the same time, weaker companies (like Yahoo) seem especially vulnerable just now.  We’ll keep an eye out for any further developments.
