Google Cloud to Launch Second Cloud Region in India

Delhi cloud region expected to open in 2021

Google today announced its plans to open a Delhi cloud region. This will be the company’s second cloud region in India since it launched the Mumbai region in 2017. The new cloud region will expand Google’s existing network which stands at eight regions in the Asia Pacific and 22 regions globally today.

Google cloud regions bring Google Cloud Platform (GCP) services to global organizations in industries like media and entertainment, retail and manufacturing, helping them drive growth, differentiation, and innovation for their business. As the company’s customers in India grow and diversify, Google continues to advance and invest in its cloud infrastructure to help regulated industries such as healthcare and financial services, as well as public sector organisations across India achieve their goals.

Commenting on the launch, Rick Harshman, Managing Director, Google Cloud Asia Pacific, said, “At Google Cloud, our mission is to accelerate every organisation’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.”

GCP regions are the cornerstone of Google’s cloud infrastructure, and they enable customers such as L&T FinanceManipal Hospital GroupReliance Mutual FundRoyal EnfieldTechMahindraTruecaller, and many more to deliver high performing, secure, low latency, cloud-based services to their users, no matter where they are around the world.

Projected to launch in 2021, the Delhi cloud region will have three zones to protect against service disruptions. The region will also include a portfolio of key GCP products, offer lower latency to nearby users, and, when combined with the existing region in Mumbai, enable geographically separate in-country disaster recovery for the customers’ mission-critical applications.

For customers in Delhi and beyond—and businesses and organisations yet to try Google Cloud services—the new region presents an opportunity to take advantage of the big data and infrastructure services onshore while staying compliant with India’s data laws and regulations.

Harshman further added, “2020 is already shaping up to be a great year for Google Cloud in India, and we look forward to helping businesses and governments solve their most complex challenges and create value for years to come.”
