Google Cloud Expands Global Footprint
As the race towards global digital transformation intensifies, the need for scalable and customizable cloud solutions is paramount. This is exactly where Google Cloud steps in, offering governments and businesses with the bespoke cloud architecture required to meet their unique demands.
Supported by a robust global infrastructure, including our network of 39 Google Cloud regions, Google Cloud delivers high-performance, low-latency cloud services to clients in over 200 counties. To extend our global footprint, Google Cloud has unveiled plans to add cloud regions in diverse locations, besides delivering on commitments in regions such as Tel Aviv, Turin, Doha, and Berlin-Brandenburg.
Google Cloud’s Global Expansion
Today, Google brings updates from around the world as they continue their aim to enhance the accessibility of Google Cloud.
Capitalizing on emerging cloud markets, Google Cloud is launching regions in Athens, Greece; Querétaro, Mexico; Auckland, New Zealand; Oslo, Norway; Dammam, Saudi Arabia; and Stockholm, Sweden.
These strategic locations will serve to meet Google Cloud users’ demands more efficiently, while fostering digital transformation and growth in these regions.
“Accessing cloud-driven innovations in a local, secure, reliable and scalable way means public sector organizations have the ability to offer greater services, and in many cases more efficient and economical for public spending. With the computing power that the cloud opens, it will be possible to advance processes that are currently expensive and open technological competition in our country. The cloud region in Mexico, without a doubt, will help accelerate the adoption of emerging technologies and democratize their benefits in favor of citizens and disadvantaged communities.”
– Emiliano Calderón, Coordinator, Estrategia Digital Nacional
“As the country’s largest grocery provider, our focus is on being the most customer-driven retailer for Kiwis and technology is core to this mission. We are pleased to hear Google Cloud is investing in Auckland to deliver its first local cloud region in New Zealand, enabling greater opportunities for us to accelerate our digital transformation efforts locally and continue to serve New Zealanders quickly and at scale.”
– Simon Kennedy, Chief Digital Officer, Foodstuffs North Island
“The financial industry is continually transforming and our long-standing partnership with Google Cloud has enabled us to adapt to change by staying at the forefront of innovation. We are pleased that Google is dedicated to establishing a Cloud region in Sweden and see this as a highly positive step benefitting companies and consumers alike. This investment will enable us to accelerate our digitisation journey within the regulatory framework, and strengthen our relationship with our clients, partners and suppliers.”
