Google to add three more cloud regions in Asia-Pacific

Google will add three more cloud regions in the Asia-Pacific, adding to the 11 it already has, the company says in a blog post from Karan Bajwa, the vice-president for Google Cloud in the Asia-Pacific.

Bajwa said The three new regions would be in Malaysia, Thailand and New Zealand, adding that these were in addition to six already announced in Berlin, Dammam (Saudi Arabia), Doha, Mexico, Tel Aviv and Perth.

“When they launch, these new regions will join our 34 cloud regions in operation around the world — 11 of which are located in Asia Pacific — delivering high-performance services running on the cleanest cloud in the industry,” Bajwa wrote.

“Enterprises across industries, start-ups, and public sector organizations across Asia Pacific will benefit from key controls that enable them to maintain low latency and the highest security, data residency, and compliance standards, including specific data storage requirements.”

Google trails well behind Amazon’s cloud service and Microsoft’s Azure in its share of the global cloud market.

The blog post included quotes from a number of businesses predictably praising Google’s cloud services.

Bajwa added that from retail and media and entertainment to financial services and public sector, leading organizations were coming to Google Cloud as their trusted innovation partner.

“The new Google Cloud regions in Malaysia, Thailand, and New Zealand will help our customers continue to enable growth and solve their most critical business problems. We will work with our customers to ensure the cloud region fits their evolving needs,” he said.
