Google has announced that it will open a new Google cloud region in Mumbai. Expected to be live in 2017, the India cloud region is aimed at offering Google cloud platform services to Indian developers and enterprise customers.
Google’s investment in a local cloud region reaffirms Google’s commitment to its customers in the country. The local region will help make Google cloud platform services even faster for Indian customers, enhancing differentiators that are already motivating companies to choose Google as their partner.
With more than one billion end users, Google cloud has gained significant traction in India and across the world. Globally, customers leveraging the benefits of Google cloud platform include Snap, Niantic Labs, Telus International and Evernote. Indian customers include Wipro, Ashok Leyland, Mahindra & Mahindra, Dainik Bhaskar Group and INshorts.com.
Brian Stevens, vice president, Google Cloud, said, “By expanding to new regions, we deliver higher performance to customers. In fact, our recent expansion in Oregon resulted in up to 80 percent improvement in latency for customers. We look forward to welcoming customers to our new cloud regions as they become publicly available throughout 2017.”
