PayPal fires up new data centre to support growth
SAN FRANCISCO (REUTERS) - PayPal has opened a new data centre to help the online payment division of eBay Inc handle its rapid growth, president David Marcus said on Tuesday.
The addition means PayPal now has four primary data centres, which it runs from network operation centres at its headquarters in San Jose, California, and Scottsdale, Arizona.
"We're growing still very, very fast, so we need more machines, more capacity and bandwidth," Mr Marcus told Reuters in an interview.
Mr Marcus declined to say where the new data centre was located for security reasons.
