Google Cloud India has announced the launch of its new cloud region in Delhi-NCR. This will help the company to serve customers in the public sector especially 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 areas are physical geographic locations where public cloud resources exist.
