The cloud region of Delhi-NCR (which has three availability zones) is Google’s 10th setup in Asia Pacific and 26th globally. Google’s first cloud region in India – consisting of three ‘availability zones’ – went live in Mumbai in 2017.
Google Cloud India on Thursday announced the launch of its new cloud region in Delhi-NCR, which will help the company serve customers exclusively in the public sector in India and across Asia-Pacific. This cloud space is Google’s second such setup in India, although the company did not disclose the investment made on it.
Google’s first cloud region in India – consisting of three ‘availability zones’ – went live in 2017 in Mumbai. The cloud region of Delhi-NCR (which has three availability zones) is Google’s 10th setup in Asia Pacific and 26th globally. Cloud regions are the physical geographic locations where public cloud resources are located.
With this new area, Google’s cloud customers working in India will be able to get better service. Having a new cloud segment will help Google compete more aggressively against rivals such as Amazon Web Services and Microsoft, which are rapidly expanding their presence in India.
Speaking on the occasion, Google and Alphabet CEO Sundar Pichai said that Google Cloud is helping companies of all sizes solve complex challenges using reliable and secure cloud technology. “This includes companies such as HDFC Bank, which is using Google Cloud for operational convenience and ShareChat, which is using Google Cloud to better serve its customers in 15 different Indian languages. .”
Google Cloud is focused on retail, CPG, health care and life sciences, finance services, communication service providers, media and entertainment, gaming, manufacturing and industrial, supply chain and logistics and public sectors. Its customers in India include HCL, InMobi, TVS, Dailyhunt, Voot etc.
