Opera Software has announced that it will be opening a new data center for Americans to better serve almost 130 million Opera Mini users. Why? Apparently serious hardware is needed to accommodate the close to 80 billion web pages, or 11.4 petabytes, served through Opera Mini each month. Users of Opera Turbo will surely benefit as well.
What Opera Software evidently intends to do with this new data center is provide American users with even faster browsing. In addition to that, the new data center, located at the Fortress Colocation Centers, follows Opera Software’s commitment to the environment, for it uses 80% renewable energy. Sounds great for American users!
