Google has announced new cloud regions coming to Columbus, Ohio, and Dallas in Texas, USA, as well as new extensions around the world, to make applications run faster for local users.
Google Cloud has revealed that its new cloud region in Israel will be located near Tel Aviv, and has announced its expansion to South America, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East.
Google could control the web with Chrome, but it is still the third-largest player in the cloud business, after Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft’s Azure service. However, Google is trying to reshape its image and make its public cloud more attractive than its rivals. Google Cloud is not yet profitable, but it brings in a revenue of about $ 4 billion per quarter, ZDNet reports.
Google Cloud now consists of 29 cloud regions and 88 zones – compared to 25 regions and 76 zones in April 2021. It provides customers with computing and storage resources closer to their users, as well as Google Analytics and its distribution network content (CDN).
The new Tel Aviv region will help startups expand and complement the regions open in Warsaw, Delhi, Melbourne, and Toronto.
Another milestone for Google Cloud is the next-generation cloud in Germany, in partnership with T-Systems. Google plans to spend 1 billion euros on cloud infrastructure over 10 years in Germany, is currently building a data center in Berlin-Brandenburg, and is expanding its region to Frankfurt in 2022.
In Saudi Arabia, Google has announced Dammam as the location for its new Cloud. They are currently working in their office in Riyadh, to support the implementation and operation of the cloud in the region.
Google has also announced that its Santiago region is now available, which will, once again, bring cloud services closer to end-users such as Caja Los Andes, Red Salud, and LATAM Airlines.
The new cloud regions in Columbus and Dallas should help local organizations deliver applications with less latency.
