Recently, Google made an announcement saying that it is planning to open its second Cloud region in Delhi, India by next year. The Internet giant’s new move will help regulated industries like healthcare, finance, and public sector organizations across India achieve their cloud goals.
Google has a data center presence in eight regions in the Asia Pacific and twenty-two regions globally, and the new cloud region will be a good addition to its existing network. The Managing Director of Google Cloud Asia Pacific, Rick Harshman said, “At Google Cloud, our mission is to accelerate every organization’s ability to transform through data-powered innovation with leading infrastructure, platform, industry solutions and expertise designed to meet our customers where they are on their journey to the cloud.” He also added that the year 2020 is going to be a great year for Google Cloud in India, and they will be focusing on creating more value by helping businesses and governments with their challenges.
The Google Cloud Platform (GCP) aims to cater to the needs of the growing diversity of industries in India. Some of the companies that the GCP has helped to deliver high-performing cloud services to their users are L&T Finance, Reliance Mutual Fund, Tech Mahindra, Manipal Hospital Group, etc.
The Delhi Cloud region will have three zones to prevent any damage due to service disruptions and also include a portfolio of key GCP products to offer lower latency to the users. Besides, with the Mumbai Cloud region opened in 2017, it will be easier to manage disaster recovery processes for mission-critical applications within the country.
